So....let me see if I understand.  CNM's student body is 18 or over.  Adults.  CNM's student newspaper runs an issue on sex--not PORN, but sex--as in safety, issues surrounding sex, etc.  CNM administrators, forgetting they are not running an elementary school and forgetting a small thing called the First Amendment, shut down the newspaper.  WTF?  Are those people insane?  Just guessing--if the CNM paper had decided to run an entire issue about war and guns, CNM administrators would have zero problem with that. 

We are so screwed up in this country.

Don't do it Tony Snell!

And yeah, CNM..WTF?!

If the CNM sex issue had been published by a high school newspaper, I might have understood the commotion to some extent. This is an outrageous response for a college paper, however - setting aside First Amendment issues, the content is much tamer than stuff the Alibi, iQ, and SF Reporter - all of which are available freely all around CNM - publish weekly. I am especially amused by reports that administrators were out pulling papers off the racks...digital versions of the issue are all over the internet and probably getting ten times as many readers as they would have absent this hullabaloo. If CNM thinks there's any way to censor this now, they're 40 years behind the times in that respect too.

I can remember in the 1950s when the Lobo called God a hermaphrodite that caused a ruckus (there was a modifying word before 'hermaphrodite" which I can't remember).

The reporter forgot to mention the MRCG meeting is today at: 

11:30 am – 1:00 pm
at Dekker/Perich/Sabbatini offices
7601 Jefferson NE, Suite 100

4:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Northwest Albuquerque Police Substation
10401 Cibola Loop NW

Maybe someone can bug them about including more stops in the Journal Center - the present route only has two. 

I hope Tony Snell doesn't hire an agent - his draft status dropped like a rock after that loss to the prep school...  Stay in school, dude and get that degree - it'll be worth more than playing in the NBA development league.

I'm guessing the sex toy and BDSM articles are what sent the administrators into fits.  I think it might be a good idea to send a box of sex toys to the administrative offices at CNM.  Might loosen up some minds over there...

Here's a good article from NM Compass with an interview from the CNM paper's editor-in-chief.

aaaand...hot off the presses comes this from CNM's president. Funny how the high school student issue hasn't come up in any of the other statements from CNM today. And no mention of "offensive content"? Something smells fishy here, but at least they're backing down...

High school student.  Yeah.

Maybe CNM should be like Greendale Community College and hand out sexual advise in fortune cookies:

Jeff (reading fortune cookie): You will get AIDS.
Annie: Flip it over.
Jeff: Unless you go to the STD fair.
Annie: I wrote that.
Jeff: Congratu-horrible.
