My second blog for the day, I'm trying to get up to date. I was amused by a controversy that erupted when the Replican party's official Black Person, Colin Powell, said that he supports the use of condoms by teenagers. What's controversial about that? Well, George W Bush does not: he thinks abstinence is the only way. Leaving aside hilarity of such an obsolete issue still even being discussed, does anybody smell just a whiff of hypocrisy in a former cocaine-user and reformed alcoholic preaching that we should abstain from safe sex, which hasn't hurt anybody who hasn't asked nicely first?
