Charlie Brown

Shock and Awe

I received an email today from a buddy of mine from college. Good guy, married a great woman, they moved back to Florida after a few years in Santa Cruz, CA (land of whackjobs) and now they have a baby.
I didn't even know she was pregnant, so, I began to feel a little like a Bad Friend(TM). That was shortlived when I received email response from him (after admonishing him for not telling) saying that they kept it a secret from almost everyone (parents excluded, of course, they HAVE to know) to keep the surprise element high. It worked.

So, let's welcome the latest addition to the world, Jasper Kai Lewis! (name tentative)

A Town's Struggle in the Culture War

MUHLENBERG, Pa. - In April, at an otherwise mundane meeting of the school board here, Brittany Hunsicker, a 16-year-old student at the local high school, stood up and addressed the assembled board members.

"How would you like if your son and daughter had to read this?" Miss Hunsicker asked.

Then she began to recite from "The Buffalo Tree," a novel set in a juvenile detention center and narrated by a tough, 12-year-old boy incarcerated there. What she read was a scene set in a communal shower, where another adolescent boy is sexually aroused.

"I am in the 11th grade," Miss Hunsicker said. "I had to read this junk."
