(no subject)

I read the Crimson White from yesterday, and I wanted to clarify something.

Plan B is NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT the abortion pill.  The abortion pill is called RU-486.  It stops a woman's body from producing a hormone needed to sustain an early pregnancy. 

Plan B is simply a large dose of birth control that is supposed to keep a woman from ovulating; it is taken to prevent pregnancy.  It does not work if you are already pregnant.

Which brings me to my next point... why would pharmacies in Tuscaloosa not offer Plan B over-the-counter?  This is a college town.  Whether you like it or not, people are having sex.  And shit happens.  Condoms break, people get drunk and forget to use protection, ect.  It's just dumb to not offer it here.  Also, several people in the paper said that if Plan B was offered, people would start having loose sex.  Plan B is not recommended for regular use.  It's emergency contraception.  That should be stressed to women that take tPlan B.  If you want to protect yourself, use condoms and/or birth control. 

But I seriously doubt that we're going to have couples having unprotected sex all the time because "We can just go pay 20 or 40 dollars for Plan B!"  Condoms are much, much cheaper. 

Sorry, this was just on my mind.


If you want to go to a nice place to eat.......

I'd suggest Chuck's Fish on Greensboro. It's right across the street from Mug Shots.

It by far has the best sushi in Tuscaloosa and rivals places in Birmingham. This is the only place in Tuscaloosa that I'll buy sushi from now on....

The entrees are a little pricey, but this is a nice restaurant to go to if you want to eat a good meal and eat more than just fast food.
