Re: Favourite poems

It's great, Noggin. Here's one I read recently and liked: Love After Love by Derek Walcott The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here.

Re: The age of consent?

Maybe they've had the kind of upbringing that has narrowed their horizons. It may have been a very happy childhood in a close family but their main role model is someone who became a young mother herself.

Re: Jesus Camp, Channel 4 Tonight (Tuesday 6.5.08) 11.05 pm (UK)

I also wondered about home schooling. If I understand correctly, a much smaller percentage of kids are home schooled in the UK and the main reason is because they are academically brilliant and don't get the stimulation their parents think they need from schools.And I believe they are tested regula...
