Targeting the news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• According to a story from the Associated Press, students at the University of Utah are allowed to pack firearms, thanks to the nation’s only state law that lets citizens carry concealed weapons at public colleges. The university had banned concealed weapons for decades, but a 2004 decision from the Utah Supreme Court said the state law prohibits the school from restricting gun-toting students. Wonder if the kids call parents to ask for pizza and pistol money.
• A report in the American Journal of Public Health showed lesbians were over two times more likely to be overweight or obese than heterosexual women. No comment yet from Rosie O’Donnell, but Mickey D’s will probably use the report as inspiration for a new line of lesbian burgers.
