Spanking may lower kids' IQs

There are 5 comments on the KTVN Reno story from Sep 25, 2009, titled Spanking may lower kids' IQs. In it, KTVN Reno reports that:

I didn't hear about this until now.

Maybe if the government was forced to balance the books they wouldn't feel so free to throw our money away like this.
