If you have students at the University of Maryland, you might want to re-think giving them any tuition next semester. The student union intends to show a XXX-rated porno film at the Hoff Theater as "an alternative to late-night drinking and other dangerous activities." Great idea. So instead of drinking, let's get them all riled up for a night of casual sex with complete strangers! Yep, that's certainly an alternative to dangerous activities!! Oh...and of course Planned Parenthood will make an appearance! Where there's porn, there's PP. This article is a must-read.
Update 5:13pm: The movie has been cancelled! I guess they finally came to their senses. This still doesn't excuse the fact that it was originally planned and accepted by the administration.
Update 2 6:32pm: Well, maybe it was more the threat of cancelled state funding rather than actually coming to their senses. At least the right decision was made in the end.
