A1: "High school sex-ed play stirs discussion on drugs, pregnancy"

The lead -- did Shari Lopatin really write this?

PRESCOTT – Sex, drugs, pregnancy, abortion. It sounds like the recipe for a film festival in New York or Los Angeles.

I almost choked on my noodles. What a slap in the face to the high school and to the students who are working hard to help inform their fellows about really hard subjects, just to work in a jab at -- who? People who make films? People who live in big cities? Gack. A high-school paper wouldn't stoop to this.

The lede is a gross stereotype. It's a bit naive to think that these types of things aren't going on in little ole Preskit. They just don't happen in 'big cities' or film festivals. WTF? This is a different approach to sex-ed and I applaud the people who are putting it on. Too bad not many people will make it past a shitty lede. jared

A film festivle in New York or Los Angeles? You are such an r-tard Steven. I think the "noodles" you were eating had more then water. Stop adding "spices" to your food that will keep you from understanding some thing as simple as the courier's articles. Did you even read the article? Because what you posted was so off from what the aricle was about. Hey so what did you put in those noodles?
