So how does a 46-year-old man write the first-person account of a 14-year-old girl?
"I pulled the old Our Bodies, Ourselves off the bookshelf a couple of times," he recalls laughing, "but mostly, I just had to get into character."
In related new, doesn't it seem like school districts would learn that there's nothing more American than refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance in school? It has to be the most common form of early civil disobedience. And yet school boards always fall into the trap of suspending kids and then looking like morons by trying to make patently unconstitutional rules. The republic will survive a few kids sitting down for the pledge. Here's the latest nonsense from a MN district.
We only had the pledge up through junior high, when I stopped saying it (no one noticed or cared). So, how did you protest the pledge?
