Very clever rip on a bunch of stations there with RX's new plug.
They talk about how everybody seems to be the "Number 1" station.
And then, they play soundbytes that sound very similar to actual "Number 1" plugs by other stations.
So you have someone claiming to be the "Over-all number 1 radio station".
And you have someone claiming to be the "Number 1 Pop and RnR Station".
Ooohhh, that stings. Now I'm strongly reminded that friends or otherwise, you are still in competition, and WAVE is not RX, so there will always be a competition that exists, and there are a lot of ways to draw that line of division, such a plug being one of them.
Of course, notice that the stations ripped on for the plug were all stations that beat RX in the Nielsen Ratings. They placed 6th. 101.9 placed 1st. 90.7 placed 2nd. 101.1 placed 3rd. 97.1 placed 4th.
Guess who placed 5th?
That's right, your "Number 1 Pop and RnR Station"...
Here's hoping that assuming I'm still with 'em by next KBP Awards, WAVE finally wins that damned elusive bird... heh.
.:I Call Double Standard On This...:.
Old news, but worth discussing, regardless.
You mean she got sued for giving her students some special attention?
"A Florida reading teacher charged with having sex with a minor pleaded guilty on Tuesday to two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior as part of a plea deal that does not include any jail time...
'To place an attractive young woman in that kind of hell hole is like putting a piece of raw meat in with the lions,' Lafave's attorney, John Fitzgibbons, said in July of the possibility of jail time. 'I'm not sure she would survive.'
The boy told investigators the two had sex in a classroom at the Greco school in Temple Terrace near Tampa, in her Riverview town house and once in a vehicle while his 15-year-old cousin drove them around Marion County.
He also said to investigators that Lafave had told him her marriage was in trouble and that she was aroused by the fact that having sex with him was not allowed. He said he and Lafave, a newlywed at the time, got to know each other on their way back from a class trip to SeaWorld Orlando in May 2004."
First, I'll be humorous and point out that this lady's husband must really be burned right now. Imagine that... a 14-year old beef injection is hotter stuff for her than her husband. I'm sure he took some measure of umbrage to that...
Secondly, I'll turn to a serious note and say that although people would love to joke that the kid doesn't even have the right to complain about getting some (I would be first in line to crack a joke like that. And at that age, maybe, just maybe, I might've tapped that, too.), this isn't necessarily true. The kid, for all we know, could end up being traumatized because of it, as what is supposed to be an authority figure suddenly drops down to a level that is way too intimate for comfort. There is no telling how a kid of his age would react to that.
Secondly, this isn't the first time this has happened. But why is it that Mary Kate LeTourneau goes to jail and this girl doesn't? Is it because the former got pregnant with her pederast lover while the latter didn't? On this count, I call double standard. Why break precedence?
And to push this angle further, notice the direct quotes from Ms. Lafave's lawyer. Effectively, he's insinuating that she's too attractive to go to jail. I don't know about you, but that's bull. That is not enough of a reason to let her get off with a slap on the wrist, and considering that if the tables were turned and this were a male teacher who were sued instead of a female teacher, odds on are that he would end up doing time for this. Double standard again.
Think about it. There is absolutely no way that an adult male can just go and have sex with a kid under similar circumstances and just get off scott free...
::sheepish grin:: ...of course, I could be wrong...
