The 20/20 story tonight could not have been more disappointing. IMHO,
John Stossel was out to shock and was pretty biased.
The show was promoted with "The end of sports in schools?" Yes, as if Title
IX,which has actually added many new players to the athletics rosters,
was going to
end all sports.

After giving a number of examples of where boys sports have been
cut in order to equalize girls and boys sports, his chat with
Barbara Walters ended with her saying "Once you have a law its
awful hard to get rid of it." Does she really want to get
rid of Title IX? I refer you to ABC at
http://www.abcnews.com/onair/2020/index.html You can download
a promotional video clip and play it on REALPLAY.

Friday evening, May 29th 20/20 will be doing a segment on Title 9. I
know anymore than that, but if you are home, or can tape it, it may be
worth watching! Cheers!
