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.
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.
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)
