Howard County's public schools are among the top in the nation. We cultivate a vibrant learning community that prepares students to thrive in a dynamic world. We also talk with kids about sex and relationships: "You can get pregnant any time you have sexual intercourse;" the site says. "Wearing a latex condom, taking birth control pills or using other contraceptives are very effective at preventing pregnancy. However the absolute way to not get pregnant is to not have sex at all. " So what was wrong with one of our elected county school board members alerting the board and its student members that a local Giant supermarket is asking the age of those who purchase condoms?

This whole scandal over Herman Cain's alleged sexual harassment of women during the 1990s is driving me crazy because the media is insisting on covering this story instead of properly vetting the candidates. Mr. Cain recently was on C-span to debate Gingrich, and it was clear he doesn't know much about government. The guy had to let Newt go first on every question because it was clear he had no clue what they were talking about. Yet the media puts a spotlight on Mr. Cain's alleged sexual misconduct instead.

The report by Politico over the weekend revealing that GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was accused by two women of sexual harassment while he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s has led to swift condemnation -- not of anything Mr. Cain may have done but of the media's appetite for such stories. Some conservative defenders of Mr. Cain, who is at or near the top in most polls of Republican voters, have compared the story to what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas referred to as the “high-tech lynching” he received at his confirmation hearings when he was confronted with allegations of sexual harassment.

My faithful readers will remember that I started at The Sun as a sportswriter more than 30 years ago, and they have heard me describe some pretty unpleasant exchanges with both professional athletes and my fellow sportswriters. For all those years in the locker room and on the sidelines, I believed I had it coming to me. I had chosen a nontraditional field for a woman, and my presence was considered something between an invasion of privacy and an insult. I was a provocation just showing up for work.

A Baltimore County fire captain dismissed in January after officials ruled that he sexually harassed female firefighters asked a Circuit Court judge for his job back yesterday. Lawyers for 47-year-old William Kraft of Chase argued that his dismissal Jan. 19 and the hearing that preceded it were unfair. "This was not a hearing; it was a charade. It was so lopsided, so one-sided, so absent of any fundamental fairness that we had no chance of winning," Louis Glick, Kraft's lawyer, told Judge Dana M. Levitz.

I read in the paper the other day that, in the age of equal rights, women have now begun to sexually harass men.That's progress of a kind, I guess. But the whole idea made me, as a man, extremely depressed.Because, I realized, I've never been sexually harassed. Women don't whistle at me when I walk down the street. I routinely don't get propositioned. No tattooed, lunch-timing construction workerette in a hard hat has ever shouted at me, "Hey, baby, wanna do the wild thing?"What I'm trying to say is, if some women out there are grading me bun-wise -- yes, it's a scary thought -- they've managed to keep it a well-hidden secret.

Anyone who has had the misfortune of calling an ex after hoisting a few too many can immediately identify with Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who left a message two weeks ago with Anita Hill asking her to apologize and explain herself. Mrs. Thomas was likely not intoxicated (hey, it was 7:30 on a Saturday morning) but perhaps she was tipsy on moral certainty. She heads a conservative political group, Liberty Central, that has taken positions on legal issues — including President Obama's health care reform — that are likely to be considered by the high court.

The document, which detailed additional allegations in a sexual harassment, discrimination and workplace retaliation lawsuit against Leopold, was never filed in Circuit Court because the case had been transferred. John M. Singleton, the attorney representing former county employee Karla R. Hamner in her suit against Leopold, told The Baltimore Sun and other news organizations that he filed an amended complaint to the suit in Circuit Court on Thursday.
