|02:13 pm - Warning: Evolution might be involved!|
I would approve of putting evolution warning stickers on text books if they looked like this:
Maybe it's time to make such stickers and distribute them to certain school boards. Any takers?

I'll never forget when I was doing my student teaching for Honors British literature. I had the kids reading John Donne's "The Flea." They struggled and struggled... then one kid finally looked up with a lightbulb over his head and blurted out, "Hey -- this is about sex!" Everyone else in the classroom suddenly buried their noses in their books and furrowed their eyebrows, as lightbulb after lightbulb flashed on over their heads... it was really amusing to watch. :)
That fits my mom's theory about warning stickers- they tell the teens which albums to buy. :)
It's like the businesses with the little Jezers fishies on their ads and signs. I am grateful as all hell that they tell where I should NOT spend my money.

Where I live (Portland, OR) one of the "alternative weeklies" called The Mercury got a letter from "Life Decisions International". The letter said that The Mercury had supported Planned Parenthood in the past, and if they didn't stop supporting Planned Parenthood, they would be placed on a national boycott list.
So The Mercury printed the letter on its cover. Ha.
