Notes & Comment: Must be something in the water

Updates on the various issues I cover regularly.

The Fourth Estate: Major news networks covered the pro-gun control, left-wing March for Our Lives 13-times more than the pro-life March for Life. According to LifeNews, "the broadcast networks covered the March for Our Lives 13 times more than the pro-life march, the night of each event."

You're on your own for news today. We have no independent press.

School Daze: A former teacher in Ohio pleaded guilty to charges stemming from giving birth to her student-turned-foster son’s baby.

Seriously consider home schooling. 

Going Mad: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has made repeated "adjustments" to its data. All their changes point to one thing — lowering previously measured temperatures to show cooler weather in the past, and raising more recent temperatures to show warming in the recent present. But the actual measured temperature record shows something different: no clear trend over the last century, at least not one that suggests runaway warming.

If it's real, why do they have to make it up? 

Poison Ivy Covered Walls: At Portland State University, biology professor Heather Heying was making a point about physiological differences between men and women. “You could be irritated by the fact that women have to be the ones that gestate and lactate. You could be irritated by a lot of truths but taking offense is a response that is a rejection of reality.” But before she had even finished her statement, a group of students got up and walked out of the room. One of the protesters apparently damaged the sound system on the way out.

Great way to skip class: Make it a moral imperative.

Alien Nation: A man arrested for raping a little girl in Oregon was found to be a twice-deported illegal alien,

We don't need no stinkin' border wall.

I've had enough: The teachers at a school in Sweden cleared the room of cars and dolls. They put the boys in charge of the play kitchen. They made the girls practice shouting ‘No!' None of this is atypical in Sweden, where many teachers refuse to refer to children with sex-specific pronouns and use instead a gender-neutral pronoun, “hen.” That’s because in centralized-government Sweden, state curriculum urges teachers and principals to embrace their role as social engineers, requiring them to ‘counteract traditional gender roles and gender patterns.

There won't always be a Sweden.
