5. great post
Edited on Tue Mar-15-05 10:12 AM by NewJeffCT
I think groupthink is prevalent in many places, however, not just the US.

But, I am scared about things like creationism being taught in schools and the fact that our colleges & universities are being bastardized as elitist, while women are told to stay at home & be in the kitchen.

Nominated.
