WHEN DID THE CIRCUS STOP BEING THE CIRCUS?
Opening night of the Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey "Bellobration" was last night at the Rabobank Arena. All week, PETA has been in town protesting the circus saying that the animals are treated unfairly.
Look, I am all for animal rights. I don't want to see an animal harmed or hurt, especially in the name of entertainment. I am also for freedom of speech... If you have something you want to protest, as long as you don't break any laws or infringe upon someone else's freedom while you're doing so, you won't get a complaint from me.
But c'mon... these animals are fed several times a day, are loved by trainers and medical staff who take care of them for a living, and while, yes, they are forced to perform-- are provided for above and beyond what the law asks for.
If you have a problem with the circus, don't buy a ticket... ask others not to buy tickets... but don't ruin everyone else's good time. It's the Greatest Show on Earth for goodness sake's!
SUPERVISE YOUR KIDS' COMPUTER USAGE...
For children, the Internet is a glorious sea of knowledge. You can find limitless information on an unlimited number of subjects and people. You can also find people subjected to an unlimited number of positions.
No matter how smart you think you are, face it, when it comes to technology, your kids are smarter than you. You can change passwords and install all the tracking programs all you want -- they're going to defeat them. Fortunately, you can now lock your computer with the KidSafe Security Key. Once the KidSafe software is installed, it cannot be uninstalled and you must have the key inserted into the USB port of the computer to make your PC function. Even the old standbys of booting in safe-mode or from a disk can be disabled.
Your kids will only use the computer when you want them to -- and your presence is the best security.
