Article Excerpt:

Back to school week continues withAbstewon Pleasantville...

Let's face it,sometimes school can be a real drag.When you're not trying to find your place among the social circles (which is just as much work as any assignment a teacher could give),there's the constant pressure of doing well academically so that you can go to a good college so that you won't waste your life!(Nope,nopressure at all...)

For those of you going on to college next year,the chance of finding a good job will actually decrease by the time you graduate.The available number of entry level jobs will drop 31% over the next 4 years.Median income for those jobs will go down as well.Obviously,my friends,it's a competitive world.And good grades are your only ticket through.In fact by the year 2000...

...Contracting HIV from a non-monogamous lifestyle will climb to 1 in 150.The odds of dying in an auto accident are only 1 in 2,500.Now this marks a drastic increase...

Yikes.No wonder David seeks out the simpler times captured in the 1950's sitcom world of his favorite show"Pleasantville".[more...]
