The Name-Game

April 25th, 2007

As I figured, the debate on the name-game continues. This CNN article makes some interesting points with regard to the use of the word wetback when referencing Mexican Americans. At what point do we have double standards going on with such words? Moreover, should we simply begin firing all the talkshow hosts who use these terms (Sometimes I’d like to just fire the all regardless)? What do you think? Where does it all lead?

A Secure Location?

No surprise! This weeks blog focuses on the Virginia Tech U. Shooting. The ARTICLE I’m blogging on today focuses on safety techniques used/not used by universities. Here two questions:

How much security do we need at the university?
What are some things we could do to make the university more safe?

Just a Child?

The following story is pretty interesting. Kevin Durant, an 18 year old freshman at the University of Texas at Austin recently announced that he will be entering the NBA June Draft. Now I’m just not sure this is a good thing? An 18 year old kid going into the NBA?

What do you think? If you think this is wrong, whose to blame?

If you think this is ok, what are the advantages (besides the $$)?

Out of Control???

Click HERE to view what I think is a failry interesting video showing a police officer pushing a skateboarder into a rather large bunch of bushes. This video was recorded in Charlotte, NC where it is apparently against the law to skateboard on “public property”.

So, the police officer was suspended without pay for 10 days for her actions. What do you think? Was such an action appropriate? Let me know.
