Spring 2016 issue of Word Worth® Magazine

Editorial  — Bathroom Laws

Word Worth® has never been interested in the transgender question and hasn’t written about it. Then here come the bathroom legislators forcing us to. Wow! What a hang-up! All a rapist or pedophile has to do in bathroom law states now is claim that he was born a woman and has to use the women’s bathroom. Way to go! bringing the wolves into the lambs fold.

Column   — Discipline or Bullying

The sadism on the part of the principal and her assistant is shockingly abhorrent. Again and again, they torment the five-year-old telling him that he’s getting a spanking as they bring out a huge wood paddle, and the traumatized child screams begging them not to spank him and crying to his helpless mother to stop them. He puts his tiny hand behind him trying to block the paddle from his backside.

Arts   — Aurelia on Banjo

Word Worth’s mission is to publish Editorials and Columns on subjects as diverse as xeriscaping, travel, archaeology, and many others, and to present fine poetry, stories, novels, and photography in the Arts section.  The opinions presented are those of the individual writers, and not necessarily those of Word Worth.  We do not shy away from controversial subjects, but we believe in dealing with them respectfully and rationally.  In one of his relatively more recent concerts, Arlo Guthrie said that over the years he had made friends that he might not have expected to make initially.  He concluded that there are two kinds of people: those who care and those who don’t.  He came to realize that you can find both of those kinds on every side of every issue.  We concur with that sentiment, and hope to present ideas in the spirit of enlightened searching.

If we cannot discuss rationally and respectfully the issues concerning our governance, this democracy will not last.
