FAFSA 'I'm Poor' Tweet Sparks Online Backlash
Wed Jun 25, 2014
In reply to: DjPaice #15I didn't find it offensive either and I had FAFSA when I went to college (class of 2011) because I was too poor to make it without help. College students are typically poor! It's a stereotype that is pretty well reinforced. Everyone I knew had loans or grants and ha …

Casey Kasem Found in Washington, but No One Told His Family
Thu May 15, 2014

Students Rally For Arrested Teens in Senior Prank Gone Wrong
Wed May 7, 2014

Everyone involved was told they could not walk in the graduation ceremony nor attend Grad Night. I still remember several classmates didn't believe the school …
'Captain Underpants,' Toni Morrison among most challenged books
Mon Apr 14, 2014
I still remember my mother trying to get Orwell's 1984 pulled from our required reading lists because it was a "bad, Communist book!"..........in 2005. I loved my mother but had to point out to her that the book was about 21 years too late to come true. She still wasn't comfortable with it unti …

Cookie Monster Corrupted by Neo-Nazis to Lure Kids
Tue Apr 8, 2014
I think I would have more faith in the high school students to laugh at the ridiculousness that is a Neo-Nazi Cookie Monster. Perhaps it would would on much younger children but not high school age kids. That being said, bring on the internet memes!

In reply to: Dirty Burt #92 I can think of several in Asia not fought over religion. They were fought over money, power, land, racism...
