‘Girls Gone Wild’ article disgraceful
I just read the article on the “Girls Gone Wild” in Portales (Wednesday’s CNJ). I am appalled.
I am new to the area and was told this is part of the Bible Belt, but how can this be if young adults are exposing themselves for TV? Do they not have any shame?
What are we promoting to our children, that it is OK to go to a bar and show off your nude body to cameras for a few seconds of fame?
These people must not have any self-respect. I respect myself to not drop to that level. The human body should only be shared with one person, not the entire world for free clothing.
I will say that again: The human body should only be shared with one person, not the entire world for free clothing.
I understand you need to report the news, but I don’t need my children picking up the newspaper and seeing a bus with young, half-naked girls on it and reading about teens taking off their clothes for TV. This is not what I expected a newspaper to promote. I am sure there is other news you could have put in that spot.
I am sorry to feel so stongly about this, but this is our children we are talking about. Why do so many people say the country has problems, but they don’t say that promoting this stuff, or seeing 15-year-olds wearing clothing you only see in adult videos, is bad?
It just baffles me. I hope some people open up their eyes and see that this kind of thing is exactly what we need to end in order to fix the country.
Now time to get back to basics of hard work
We have good men and women in this community who go to work every day and attempt to make a living for themselves and their families. Most workers in our community are paid less than $25 per hour wages and benefits combined. The greedy automobile industry, with an average wage and benefit package of $75 per hour, wants to take the wages of our folks in a bailout package.
The chili farmers who pay less than minimum wage and no benefits to their workers can’t find enough labor (wonder why) so they want a $200 per acre bailout, which would come from — you guessed it, the folks who are working.
We just got through with replacing a U.S. senator and all of our congressmen. Contact them early and often and tell them to stop the bailouts and let our country get back to the basics of working for what we get, not riding on the backs of the working people.
Driving tip helps avoid head-on collisions
Whenever I read an article about people having head-on collisions I recall an article I read many years ago in Popular Science.
One of the main points in the story was drive as close to the right-hand side of the highway as possible and leave the highway if any danger presents itself. Anything you might hit off of the highway is far better than a head-on collision.
Over the years I have left the highway three times to avoid a collision.
Next time you drive down the highway look how many people drive within one foot of the center line.
