    Last night I ws thinking about something that raises a very good question. Well I remember when I was in 7th grade and while oj simpson was on tv runnin from the police on the highway we were watching it...in school...a bunch of 7th graders and 8th graders..all over the district wtching a football player who was a possible murderer run from the cops. IN SCHOOL??!! Now I thought about that and I was wondering how friggin appropriate is that really? To show that in school while we are trying to learn something? And it's not that it was jsut our classroom it was everyone in all schools ws watching it on tv as it happened. Why? Why were we watching that? Why subject a lot of young people to that for no reason?? I don't remember there being a point. It seems as though something more is behind that.

    Yeah, that is messed up. The only tv broadcast I recall watching in school was when the Challenger blew up.
