School principal, Verenice Gutierrez, has decided that a peanut butter sandwich is racist. It is not enough that people can be racist, but now our food is racist. Everything we eat now has a vicious connotation and Ms. Gutierrez is making sure that teachers in her school take a sensitivity course...

1984 is one of those books I thought I'd read in school, but hadn't actually read. I did see the movie with John Hurt as Winston Smith and most of the language of 1984 has passed into common use, like Big Brother, thought police, thought crimes, etc. George Orwell's take on the future is...

I was seventeen when I first read 1984, and that was the year George Orwell forever changed my view of the world. I don't think any other novel read during my school years quite impacted my thinking the way 1984 did. I discovered it in 1999, so the plot in the book had long since past. It was...
