    I have a question. I agree that the military should not bar gays from serving openly. But the military does have the right to control behavior. If heterosexual people are barred from engaging in adultery, and adultery is defined as sex outside of marriage. Then how will they apply that standard to gays?

    Thank goodness for the pilot refusing the government-sponsored perversion of the body scanners. He's 100% correct. We should ALL stand up against this. If I went up to a total stranger and told them I wanted to take a picture of them with a special camera that could see through their clothes . . . I would be arrested. The government agents should be stopped. The pat-downs are a little perverted, too, don't you think? Where else in America can you get away with such behavior?

    Anita Hill shouldn't be asked, forced or intimidated into apologizing for her testimony she gave before Congress. Clarence Thomas's wife is just wrong for even asking.

    Teachers shouldn't be "friends" of their students. They should TEACHERS.

    I am currently watching AM and they are talking about HRT. I am 30 years old and I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago. About a year ago I began the Vivila(spelling is off)Dot and I am wondering if all these same warnings apply to me. My Dr. feels strongly that I need this to avoid heart disease and bone weakness. I have questioned having a baseline mammogram done to monitor my breasts since I am so young and taking HRT.

    I would be grateful for any thoughts.
