Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Teen Pregnancy "Pact" - Umm... not so much...

So it looks like the uproar in Gloucester, MA, may be coming to a close. Ellen Goodman's column, however, points out the problem with breathing a sigh of relief at discovering that the young ladies didn't have a so-called "pregnancy pact" - does the lack of an intentional plan really make teen pregnancy suddenly acceptable for some reason??

And just out of curiosity, did anyone ever really mention the boys or men involved in this whole ordeal? Where's the call for accountability and responsibility there? Where's the blame game for the males in all this? Somehow, that part ALWAYS seems to be neglected...
