New Topic

There's been talk in the news of late about lowering the drinking age -- from twenty-one possibly to eighteen, or even lower. (Check it out if you haven't already heard.) Naturally this has spurred a great amount of debate -- on both sides. Both those for and those against are getting strongly involved and heated on this subject.

I'm pretty neutral on the subject (I'm much more interested in the idea about college professors wanting to do away with correct spelling -- I mean, really? Correct spelling? What is the world coming to?) Anyone else have an opinion (on spelling, drinking, or otherwise)?

Now, about MP. I am not trying in my previous entry to say that I dislike the man. He's a great athlete, and (never actually having met him) I'm sure he's a very nice human being. He is also super incredibly fine on the eyes (and he has big feet). But what I would like to point out is that there are over two hundred countries competing in the Olympics, and even if each country has only one representative, that still leaves over two hundred more athletes that are competing. So how about we give some of them some airtime too?

now, iam going two due a whey with awl mai core wrecked spelling. Moo vying awn now.

I wrote a paper my sophomore year of college arguing that we should lower the drinking age to 18 (an interesting topic for a 19-year-old at a school that forbade anyone associated with it to drink anywhere ever). I found quite a few college presidents to quote in support of my position, and that was six or so years ago, so seeing that headline in the "news" the other day made me laugh. :)
