Happy Birthday, Sarah!
I love the questions being asked by this amazing group of people. Thanks for posting!
Thanks for posting this! Very interesting and I'm saving the link as I think this group asks some terrific questions.
Well said, britches!
The Onion is not being purchased by the Chinese. Gawker Stalker reported this, but and they've now put this in the 'hoax' category on their website. Funny!
Paper, printing, and binding costs average about $2.00 per book. While it might be better for the environment not to print books, the cost of e-books, at least e-textbooks, will never be as low cost as one might hope. Royalties, copyediting, permission costs, photo research, indexing, composition, covers (assuming we still want them), electronic file creation, advertising, and instructors' resources all need to be factored into the equation.
I checked out the MontavillaInAction.blogspot as suggested by MontavillaInAction and I don't understand why you're upset about the quote that's being used in this article. Clearly, as an organization, you do think there is a link between sex shops and prostitution. If you get rid of the sex shops, it will reduce or help reduce prostitution in the neighborhood, right? Maybe I'm missing something. Also, I don't see any mention of 'increasing police presence' in the Merc article. Again, am I missing something? I wouldn't want a lot of sex shops in my neighborhood either and I would work to change the zoning regulations. So, I fundamentally agree with what I think you're fighting for. I do wonder, however, if you want a real dialogue? It seems to me you only want your (our) side of the argument presented and are attacking this article because it presents several other points a view.
