Morning Editon - 7/20/05

In The Bag
DC Metro riders may soon be asked to show what they’re carrying in their bags. A new anti-terrorism consideration by the DC Metro system is a random police check of bags. In light of the recent London tube (train) bombings, some say the measure makes perfect sense. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) objects to all physical searches.

Phone Home
Cell phone sales will top 800 million worldwide this year, with more than 2.9 billion folks expected to carry cell phones by 2009. This means that the need for public telephones and even home telephones is zippo. With recent cell phone company mergers, prices on cell phone subscriptions are dropping.

On Blast
Today’s topic is … During our road trip to DC this weekend. the issue of what is acceptable for men and women in the dating/sex realm came up. The old belief that men are not held to the same standard as women with regard to promiscuity and social flirtation. Is the old-age belief that a man is a man regardless of what he does socially/sexually, while a woman is a whore if she partakes in, what many would consider frequent activity, still true? Can women today “run the street” and still be respected and respectable women or are we still bound by the same old-age beliefs? Are men now suffering the same repercussions as women when they are promiscuous? **Disease is not a consideration for this issue ** (Please post your opinion in our Comments section for this Morning Edition)

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Speaking of cell phones...fyi


Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.
ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!

Suffering repercussions from others is embeddable. People with persecute you for any and everything that they are not , you will be DAMN for it. The percussions, shades of doubt and/or persecute anyone need worry about is self.
So, if you can look up in the mirror as you rise yourself off in the sink of that service road motel bathroom or before you step into the Jacuzzi bath of the five hotel penthouse suite and smile; then it’s all good.

You are only accountable to feel good about yourself and your own actions, to yourself and anyone that you allow yourself to be accountable to, for whatever reasoning. What’s good for you may not be good for me, or most folks but, you don’t have to live with most folks; just, myself.

Sex, is an act that should only be performed consenting adults. Be consenting, be an adult, be respectable and above all be true to yourself.

To thine own self be true... that's all cool J'Moo... but what about the question about perception. Is there STILL a double standard that gives men the green light to act a fool and belittles women when they express their sexuality? That is the question at hand. Realistically, both men and women can/may feel great about themselves (even when their legs are up in the air) but are they held to different standards? Also J'Moo (et al) is their a different standard for passive and aggressive gay men?
BTW... where is KrisAlmighty today?!
