You’ve heard it before. I’ll tell you again. Follow the money trail. It seems a perceived loss of federal funds was the reason why president Sharron Stephens kicked Jacob Berry out of Bridgeport Junior College in West Virginia. She thought the feds would not recognize self-certification by homeschoolers. The Home School Legal Defense fund sent Stephens a letter explaining otherwise, but she’s still not convinced. It may take a lawsuit to get her to change her mind.


The Next Phony Disease: Healthy Eating Disorder?

We can blame Dr. Steven Bratman for coining the term “orthorexia nervosa” in 1997. Using Greek and Latin words gives the term legitimacy in some circles, whereas many of the same people would give no credence to “healthy eating disorder.” Healthy eaters are wondering how long before their passion for pure foods is added to the American Psychiatric Association’s “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.” After that, no doubt, there will be drugs to treat this non-disease.
