In the absence of Veg, let me start a new topic on a moral issue here. ;-)
There seem to be huge differences in the USA in the acceptance (or non acceptance) of teens having a baby.
I understand, that CA has a different point of view than states in the Bible Belt. But Alaska is not in the Bible Belt, is it (Palin)?
Why are the differences in the US so large? Everyone speeks the same language and watches the same Broadcasts. Furthermore, religion is alive in most places.
