My Nephew wrote this - a reminder of a LONG time ago.

My grandparents were poor. I didn't know it but they were.

They earned $30 a week. Grandpa worked in a block plant,

and Grandma took care of chickens. The man who owned the

plant gave them a rent-free house to live in.

Needless to say, they didn't have many luxuries. But Grandma

had THE RADIO. THE RADIO was made for men named

Hank Snow, Earnest Tubb, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Hank Williams.

Some women; Brenda Lee, Minnie Pearle, were also allowed on.

Naturally, it worked best when tuned to the Grand Ole Opry.

Grandma had Grandpa string an aerial to the big chicken house

for better reception.

THE RADIO had a huge lighted dial, pushbuttons, switches, knobs,

and lights to tell if it was, and if so, what you were listening to.

It was taller than I was, and got almost as much good care. It was carefully dusted and oiled. If a tube went it,

Grandpa had to go uptown to get a new one.

If there was lightening around, it was the first thing to be unplugged.

If I was good, after Grandma and Grandpa listened to

their music, and, Lum and Abner, I could listen to Gangbusters, or

The Shadow. If I was really good I could listen to Tom Corbet,

Space Cadet.

Tom Corbet got me the second worst spanking I ever got. I was

under strict instructions not to touch any of the buttons, dials, or

knobs on THE RADIO; not even the one marked Vol.

However, after one Tom Corbet episode, I thought that THE

RADIO would make an excellent control panel for the jet

boat Tom Corbet was using. Throwing caution to the winds,

I started to use THE RADIOÂ to control the speed and direction

of the jet boat. I have no idea what I did to THE RADIO, but

it took Grandma 2 days to get it back to its original state of

health. She used the yard stick to remind me that I was NEVER

to play with THE RADIO again.

Is that fair?

The paper uses the term - for jobs Americans don't want. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

American's will do ANY job, they just want to GET PAID A LIVING WAGE FOR DOING IT.

WHAT is wrong with that?

Some Abstinence Programs Mislead Teens

Some Abstinence Programs Mislead Teens, Report Says

The Washington Post reports that - Many American youngsters participating in $171 Million federally funded abstinence-only programs have been taught over the past three years that abortion can lead to sterility and suicide, that half the gay male teenagers in the United States have tested positive for the AIDS virus, and that touching a person's genitals can result in pregnancy.

The examples of false, misleading, or distorted information in the programs' was discovered in  teaching materials. Among the misconceptions cited by Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) investigators: • A 43-day-old fetus is a thinking person. • HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, can be spread via sweat and tears. • Condoms fail to prevent HIV transmission as often as 31 percent of the time in heterosexual intercourse.

Bush PROMISED to look at Science for Yucca Mountain, but is using HIS Ideology (abstention) to fight AIDS. CONDOM EDUCATION IS SCIENCE BASED. Why does he refuse to promote it?
