now i totally realize that this school obviously wants to participate in the time honored tradition of naming a school after a president or some prominent historical figure, but i think i'd stop and reconsider on this one. i'm sure regan was a nice man, but given the complexities of his title he held along w/other factors, i think they should definitely be sure they wanna name their school after him.

my $.02. :) thanks ;D

well it's a good thing we don't run under a dictatorship then, although i'm sure there are people out there who'd beg to differ. lol

but you're right in posing the thought of how to put a definition to the words 'responsible journalism'. it's like trying to put a concrete meaning to the term 'first amendment right' so-to-speak sometimes, you know? i mean, if that's really so hard to do or can be done somewhat 'abstratctly', then so can't 'equal protection under the law' be used in the same manner along w/almost any of the other amendments w/the exception of giving women and non-whites the right to vote? that's the only concrete thing i've ever seen when it comes to the constitution.

if the drafters of that sucker only knew what was gonna happen over 200yrs after they wrote that....

sorry jonesy, but not everybody benefitted from the regan era. take me for example. during his seating in office? a lot of the education programs i and other elementary school children had were taken away from us because the funding they got went towards those stealth bombers that never seemed to work along w/the defense budget. does anybody remember that?

on saturday mornings, i'd go to the junior high that housed my enrichment program where i expanded on the 2 foreign languages i was learning in regular school and was getting help w/any kind of homework i had from the week prior. this was a major help for a black kid from the worst city to live in America in at the time. (ever been to Gary, IN?) as soon as Regan dropped the axe on education, literally, the next week? Saturday school was no more. no more spanish, french, orchestra (i was learning the cello in addition to my violin at the time), and most importantly, nobody to help me w/my homework. my parents had both only graduated from h.s. and i had to basically teach them what i learned in school - at least where math and science were concerned - and try to learn things on my own. not easy when you have ADD...just w/o a name yet.

so not everybody benefitted from the Regan era, i'm sorry to say. and you could totally tell by the kids who went there, too. grades started to fall, kids' attitudes got worse, i could go on for quite some time about this.

and no political science teacher had to tell me this. sorry to sound so sarcastically cynical.

greg, i could kiss you!! of course that's after gettign permission from your wife/gf. lol! ;D

i know i know...deep down i know he has just as much right to publish that as i would to write an opinion back about him. and i agree, he is protected by the first amendment. but at the same time, it brings up the age old question, 'what about journalistic responsibility?' along w/other questions i don't really wanna get into today...i think this jerk was enough. *sigh*
