A kiss is still a kiss.

Big kerfuffle over some high school yearbook photo in Joisey that showed two guys getting their smooch on. Someone blacked it out so as not to "offend" parents, but others got offended because of that yada yada apology whatever. SOP. But I hope I'm not the only one to puzzle over this: "the yearbook is filled with pictures of heterosexual couples kissing."

WHY? Why have public schools gotten into the business of helping our kids hook up? Yes, it'll happen anyway, sure, but whose bright idea was it that the schools should encourage it with dances, voting on "hottest date," yearbooks stuffed with smoochy photos, etc.?

Gay or straight, romance shouldn't be the fourth R.

Lunchtime funny.

I've been looking through old posts for ideas and whatnot and ran across this. Some of my long-time readers may be amused. Please note that Gerry commented THREE YEARS after the post went up.

Sometimes it seems that everything on the intertubes has happened simultaneously. One second ago, last week, 2004 -- what's the difference really? Or it could be the new drugs I'm taking. ~shrug~

Eye candy.

Now that sugary treats and fatty snacks are being banished everywhere from Playland Amusement Park's vending machines to the local school cafeteria, candy - the unhealthy confection that has become public enemy No. 1 in the fight against childhood obesity - has taken up residence in a safe enough place: the halls of museums where visitors can look but not partake.

"I WANT Candy: The Sweet Stuff in American Art," a new exhibit at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, puts the forbidden confections front and center with oil paintings, watercolors and sculptures of candies, cakes and doughnuts. The exhibit runs through Sept. 2 and features, appropriately enough, a contemporary Marie Antoinette of "Let them eat cake" fame in a delicious oil painting by Will Cotton called "Candy Curls."
