Friday this and that

Those with any common sense on this subject will ask, "What else is new?"

Meanwhile, this is a good one, too. The title reminds me of that classic "Jerky Boys" album where one of them calls an attorney looking to sue someone for "punitive damages." Towards the end of the bit, the JB says "Sue you, sue everybody!"

Then there's the New York Times ... selectively editing soldiers' letters from Iraq?? Come on, that's outrageous! They wouldn't do something like that! They're a big-time news organization!

Speaking of big-time news organizations, dope Emily Messner of the Washington Post didn't know a well known fact about one of her city's biggest pundits. Describing conservatives' glee over SCOTUS nominee Samuel Alito, she wrote “Nonetheless, it is amusing to imagine Charles Krauthammer doing a touchdown dance.” Uhh ... Krauthammer has been a paraplegic since 1972. She later apologized, but as Michelle Malkin notes, just imagine if a conservative writer had written such about Max Cleland ... or Christopher Reeve.

Lastly, adding to Rhodey's post yesterday about the [nutty] 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling about parental rights and public schools, Rod Dreher discovered what some of the school in question's "survey" questions were. Check 'em:

[Students] were asked to rate how much they thought about these specific topics:
a. "Touching my private parts too much."
b. "Thinking about having sex"
c. "Thinking about touching other people's private parts."
d. "Thinking about sex when I don't want to."
e. "Washing myself because I feel dirty on the inside."
f. "Not trusting people because they might want sex."
g. "Getting scared or upset when I think about sex."
h. "Having sex feelings in my body."
i. "Can't stop thinking about sex."
j. "Getting upset when people talk about sex."

Um, why in the world was the school asking about this crap in the first place??
