Bullying: More, Less or Different?

Bullying: More, Less or Different?

Bullying in schoolshas shot up over the past five years, according to anannual surveyby the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Kristin and Greg talk about whether or not bullying is actually getting worse or if kids are just reporting it more (which isn’t a bad thing). Then we go through some headlines:

  • The Good: Apparently, The Chicks have been performing a cover of Miley and Dolly’s Rainbowland in all of their shows since May.
  • The Bad: A white man armed with a high-powered rifle and a handgun killed three Black people at a Dollar General store in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday, before shooting himself, in what local law enforcement described as a racially motivated crime.
  • The Wasteful: France is about to spend about $216 million destroying nearly 80 million gallons of surplus wine, enough liquid to fill more than 100 Olympic-sized swimming pools, the Washington Post reported. The problem is that higher production costs and shrinking demand for vin have made it impossible for French wineries to sell their spiked grape juice for a profit, even if it does have tantalizing hints of oak and leather. The average French citizen drinks about 40 liters of wine per year, compared to 136 liters in 1926.
