      a medical procedure, because they don't know jack sh*t about the science involved in it.

      It is ridiculous to pretend that firing teachers based on student test scores, starting charter schools, giving out vouchers or implementing merit pay will overcome the challenges facing a child living in poverty. -Jersey Jazzman

      When I was young and living in NYC (early 1970s, not a particularly enlightened time) I had a male boss who would denigrate the negative feelings of those of us of his women subordinates who rode the subway and got felt up during the commute.
      He used to say we should be flattered because it just proved we were attractive to men.
      Until, of course, the day when he was groped on the subway on his way to work.
      Then there was no end to the punishment that should be inflicted on the groper.
