I'm tired of seeing the commercial celebrating Title IX. It's one of those politically correct federal regulations that have contributed to lessening of options for males. If you look at college trends, there are far more women in college and far more of them doing better than men in and out of college. Why did we need to "level the playing field" in athletics for women? So more people could watch the WNBA? Really, who gives a flying 4&q% about the WNBA? Meanwhile universities across the nation have had to shut down wrestling, baseball, and other men's sports because they don't have an equal number of women's sports. I've heard that some schools were begging girls to sign up for sports because they couldn't fill the teams. While the men's teams had to cut players.

Time to reverse this federal regulation.

Amen, Dodger Matt. Be careful what you say. I'm sure Obama is monitering what you say. When was the last time you had your tax returns audited?
