Makes me ill that you published a “peeved” about the gymnastics abuses. One - if this reader had actually informed themselves of the case they would have read that often parents were in the room when the good “dr” was abusing the victims. Two - do not blame the victims! Other than the esteemed “dr” blame USA gymnastics and MSU for continuing to support such a sick depraved individual despite complaints and suspicions. This isn’t because parents weren’t paying attention or dropping them off at facilities. Give me a break - two officially sanctioned organizations were giving a predator access to victims.
First, we (true) southerners had to endure the demise of Chick-Fil-A slaw. Now – to add insult to injury, we must also have slaw snatched from our beloved Tenders menu. Come on “restaurant” people. This is the South. We like slaw. Give us our slaw back.
Research has now found that a person does not “mature” brain-wise until age 25 or 26. That the frontal cortex has not matured. Yes, I know there are exceptions to that but come on. I think of all the people that grew up during the depression and during WWII (I use this age as a guide because I have numerous friends whose parents are the ages of those that grew up during those times) and how much more mature they were at even younger ages. What has happened to our society for it to now be an “excuse” to do stupid things until you are about 25 or 26 and be excused because they are not mature? I think it is a dumbing-down of our society that allows people to have those excuses.
