   I have trouble understanding how 3 seemingly bright young Americans were captured 'hiking' in Iraq. What in the hell were they thinking? Who goes 'hiking' in Iraq for godsakes? Didn't they realize there is a war going on? Aren't there thousands of beautiful places to 'hike' that aren't...

     A lot of people are home schooling these days. I suppose it's because they don't want to expose their child to 'worldly' influences or maybe it’s because they’re afraid their child will be 'bullied'. Maybe they were bullied or had a miserable school...
