News & Opinion


T his week in News & Opinion, we take on the big issues of religion's attitude toward gays (is conversion the solution?), general social injustice (one NPR writer's crusade), welfare recipients (taking a random look at their plight), joining the "Nuclear Club" (a scientist thinks Pakistan and India are lying), and most important of all, finding nudie shots on the Internet (revisiting the censorship issue).

Rounding out this section, Nashville Scene's James Hanback takes a look at the iMac and Walter Jowers fondly recalls his childhood yo-yo experience and its resurgence.
