California, the land of the "tolerant," recently has become the land of censorship and oppression, thanks to its passage of SB 1172. Set to go into effect Jan. 1, this new law bans anyone under the age of 18 from receiving licensed counseling that in any way steers them away from same-sex attraction, including away from sexual acts.

I recently saw the American Academy of Pediatrics' "Valentine's Day tips" on how to love one's child. Clearly, the pediatricians do not subscribe to "tiger" parenting, a la Yale professor Amy Chua.
It's the one day of the year set aside for matters of the heart, but that hasn't stopped psychologists, economists, social scientists and even cybersecurity specialists from taking a more intellectual approach to Valentine's Day.
Regarding the article "Senate repeals 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell," (Web, Dec. 18), I am disappointed with the U.S. Senate for giving final approval Saturday to historic legislation repealing the policy banning gays from serving openly in the military.
