Former Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders announced she's about to host a nationally syndicated talk show. I still can't figure out why she was fired. What did she say? First she said the legalization of drugs should be studied, because crime is 60% drug related. That's true. It didn't help her son got busted for selling cocaine. That was a bad PR dovetail. Then she said during sex education, maybe masturbation should also be talked about. She didn't say it should be part of home room. "All right, everyone pull out your no. 2 vibrators. You have five minutes, and no checking your neighbors work. GO!... Billy, slower. Bethanne, arch your back. Mellow, wrong end." I think maybe the Surgeon General got fired because of the size of certain privates and not what she insinuated should be done with them. Besides, why shouldn't it be part of curriculum? They teach us logarithms and which have you used more recently? When's the last time you justified a proof? This would finally give lab partners something to do. Grading on a curve would take on a whole new meaning. And maybe, just maybe there would be a lot less gang activity if homie looked forward to homework that reflected a study course having to do with his everyday life, or for some of us, 3 times a day life.
