1. Rape is legally defined and arm touching does not constitute "first degree rape"

Not according to University feminists. According to them, anything that the female doesn't want, even The Day After, is rape.

3. The point about drunk college boys seems unlikely to come up in a high school textbook.

Nowhere did I imply that they would write about drunken college boys.
It's the philosophical attitude that counts.

4. The same thing could happen now since it's controlled by the textbook makers

Look at any textbook. They're all written by University professors. So whether it's this set of professors, or that set of professors or set, you're just as likely to get some bias. If you don't believe me, read any Howard Zinn textbook.

NASCAR should embrace the latest tech like NASA does, instead of old tech.

Forgot to mention that NASA never uses the latest tech. Ever. They're always more than a decade behind state of the art (that's what "latest tech" means, after all).

NASA needs people who can write the assembly language of the chips on the Voyager craft...
