Think of the wasted space her column take is equal to her space between her thoughts. She follows a different drummer more like rap. Annoying music too. what happened to that old brat story lady Lynn something

In a world that is already over populated, we should really consider when and how we have children. It is irresponsible for someone to have a child when they themselves are just a child. Nobody seems to stop and think about how much work it is to raise a child. Teens see these stupid shows on TV that glorify teen pregnancy and think its OK to be having sex at 15 or younger.

At such a young age you should be taking care of yourself before even THINKING of having a child. There is more to life than having 10 kids and some people just don't seem to realize this.

I agree that Mike the barber is all right. Not a racist.

I, like Michael, have my own salon, and had it happened to me, I probably would have done the same thing. It would have been politically incorrect no matter what.
Then you, like Mike, are dishonest. I don't see how it could possibly be politically incorrect to admit that you do not have any experience with a particular type of hair.

I think you're confusing your fear of being politically incorrect with your inability to effectively communicate.

For believing in what you think and saying so is not wrong. Bigot is a title others give you for not going along with the political and morals of others. Rather except your thoughts they rather brand you with a scarlet letter. If your not Physically hurting them then "stick and stones". When we all agree on something were not weighting our full thoughts. I hate white folk with the better than you attitude. ya you honky!
