aalert_ban.gif The Day of Silence is a day when Students in schools across the United States opt to remain silent during class, to symbolize the "silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies." Instead they hand out a small card to people that explains that their "deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination... that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices." The DOS is on the April 25th, and has been going on since 1996. However, this year, there is a heightened interest and involvement as a result of the murder of Lawrence King. The AFA doesn't want the DOS to happen, releasing an "action alert" explaining their stance on it and are urging parents to keep their kids home to persuade schools to cancel the voluntary events held on April 25th. Here's the PSA, [audio:] and their FAQ on the event

Why should parents be concerned about the so-called Day of Silence? A. This event was started a decade ago by an adult homosexual advocacy group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), with the goal of promoting homosexuality to all students in a given school. It has grown enormously, unfortunately, as the support for the 'gay' agenda has been embraced by thousands of schools and impressionable students nationwide.

Apple: Your House Burned Down, have an iPod

  • More than 100 high school students in the Poway school district who lost homes in the October wildfires have received a surprise gift – iPods donated by Apple. Kari Afshari, 15, a sophomore at Rancho Bernardo High, said she was told last week to drop by a classroom for pizza and was surprised when she and fellow students were handed nano video iPods.
The kids were gifted the iPods after a member of the community sent an email to Steve Jobs asking for help. Jobs never responded, his email address is handled by super intelligent squirrels, but it ended up with  Michael Foulkes, the state and local affairs manager for Apple. Shortly after, the Nanos were delivered. Apple mentioned they didn't want any publicity for the act. Ok, so its a nice gesture, and I'm sure a bunch of the kids had iPods that were lost in the fire. But see, their old iPods just happen to be in their rooms, in the house, that also burned to the ground. No computer to dock to, and all their music, photos, and videos are gone. Hold that, Apple should have no problem letting them redownload all that music again from iTunes, given the situation. Whats that? you downloaded all your music from p2p and bittorrent?  The only thing you bought on iTunes was The Office? In that case, you are S.O.L. The point is giving a kid who just lost everything an iPod is not as good as giving them relief funds.  I don't blame Apple, I blamed the dumbass who asked apple for iPods.
