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.
