    The right-wing just won't let go of their "Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen" bit of nonsense. Today the Christiantist site World Net Daily is asking their readers to FedEx letters to the Supreme Court demanding they hold a hearing on the subject. They also want letters sent to Republican members of Congress saying, "Please hold congressional hearings to investigate whether Barack Obama meets the basic constitutional requirements for the highest office of the land." They are also demanding that the members of the Electoral College prove Obama's citizenship before their December 15th vote that will officially make him...

    Lack of feminist support for governor is not hypocritical For the record, Sarah Palin was far from the feminist ideal. Seriously. I have yet to come across one feminist-identified individual with an iota of support for the woman. However, political commentators displayed their limited understanding of feminism by considering this lack of support hypocritical. In their minds, Palin was strong, confident and defiant of gender norms. She was basically a man (say, George Bush for example) in a woman’s body. Kate Obenshain’s Nov. 21 article for the Washington Times, “Radical feminism’s mighty foe,” falls in line with this critique. According...

    The teacher guilty of having sex with a student at Brighton Collegiate High School is in jail for violating terms of her probation — namely having sex with another parolee and testing positive for alcohol consumption. Carrie McCandless began serving a 30-day jail sentence at the Larimer County Detention Center Friday after voluntarily turning herself in to Weld County Probation officials. She did not appear in court to contest the violations, according to Larimer County district attorney officials. McCandless waived the court appearance by signing documents dated March 13. The sexual encounter was discovered on March 6 when a parole...

    I'm sorry, but if teachers or coaches seduce high school students, they ought to spend some time in jail. That's not been happening around here lately. - Erin McLean, 29, a student teacher at West High School, had an affair with a male student that led to his death. She left town, got another teaching job in Nashville, tried to seduce another boy, then skipped out when that came to light. Prosecution has not been pursued. - David Higgins, 51, a West High ROTC instructor, videotaped female cadets changing clothes and convinced them to disrobe and perform stunts. He got...
