This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

This is what I don't understand. by Milhouse
Security is a million miles tighter than it was 20 years ago. When I was in high school, I had different days off than the local public school, so I used to drop by and have lunch in their cafeteria with my public school friends from time to time. No one ever took the slightest bit of notice.
There is no way that I could do that now. None at all. (And not just because I'm 40.)
At my kids' schools, there are electronic locks and funneled traffic. How do these folks still get in, and what -- besides armed guards and barbed wire and machine gun nests -- can we do to stop them?
