A Club For Every Interest

Berkely High School has a club for the purpose of dispensing devices to prevent pregnancy to young students. A twelve pack each week compliments of the school district with an offer of free food to perk their interest. The district put an announcement for the "Condom Club" in the school bulletin that is e-mailed to the students and parents. The sad thing is that parents are so used to it they barely batted an eye. Just another day in the life of our schools.

The article quoted a conversation with the writer and his ninth grade son in which the father asked the son about the club. After the son told the father he wasn't going to join, the father attempted to teach the son how to use one, the son responded, "Dad, they taught us in sixth grade." Gee, dad how come you didn't know that already!
