the attached advertisement is found on the last page of SLAP magazine for the month 
of June 2005

this mag is very popular with middle schoolers; however, the sexual and deviantly 
portrayed skater culture seems to raw, graphic and exploratory for my middle school 
audience; there is explicit language, inuendo, sexual situations, profanity, etc. 
throughout the magazine (I thought it was intended for a wider demographic and a 
younger audience)

I want to protect innocence (what's left of it - hanging by a thread) and free 
speech.  I welcome your comments and insights
