The survey is in: What you think of the J-W comics

I am surprised that "Get Fuzzy" ranks so low. However, the last time I read the column I was pasting up pages for a small community newspaper. It *may* have lost its relevance since then.

Live from the Downtown Lawrence Sidewalk Sale

Great job today, Shaun! You made the story interesting while still maintaining an objective reporter-type point-of-view. I went downtown, didn't find a darn thing, but I did notice that it was considerably slower than last year. My boyfriend and I still managed to find a way to spend our money downtown this year... in the form of beer and tips. :)

You might be a redneck if you've ever been too drunk to fish... or blog?

Farmers to gather sweet corn

I got some corn from Dillon's a few weeks ago and was happy enough with it... I can't WAIT until this stuff is ready!! It doesn't even need butter. It's good enough on its own!

Mother doubts teen daughter’s reasons to start taking birth control pills

It seems like the mother just needs to have a good, old-fashioned, sit-down-at-the-kitchen-table-TALK with her daughter. I think 15 is WAY too young to have sex, but I know that it happens. I grew up in a home with a single mom and two older sisters, and sex was never a taboo topic. I'm still relatively young, but I've only had one partner and quite a healthy sex life and I also talked to my mother before I did "IT," even though I was an adult with my own non-momma-funded apartment when I became sexually active. I wasn't embarrassed to ask her for my health insurance cards to go to the doc, even if I knew that she would know that that was what was up. We all have varying opinions on when sex is right, but I don't think that anyone could possibly argue that talking to your mother about sex and all that is related is a bad thing. Just TALK! There is no reason to hide.

Bicycle caution

I don't see many bicyclists breaking rules (not any more than drivers, anyway), but some of them need to invest in some brighter clothing! A navy blue shirt and black pants with one teeeeny tiny reflector on the bike do not make it easier for me to see you on Iowa at night, Mr. Bicyclist.

Would you drink wine from a can?

I'm not sure if I would like it, but I would probably give it a try at least once (especially if it were free!)

What advice would you give incoming freshmen?

Live. It. Up. You'll only be a freshman once. Should you make irresponsible decisions? Yes. Should you also be 100% aware that you and you alone are responsible for your decisions? Yes. College is all about balance.
