In a step forward for small-town Ohio, officials of The Ellet Suburban Football League have reversed their decision to ban Stephen Derrig from helping coach his 7-year-old son's football team. Derrig is on disability as a firefighter who contracted AIDS from patients he was asked to help in the line of duty. Maybe I'm naive, but I thought we were past this kind of small-minded knee-jerk reactionary behavior. Hopefully the citizens of Ellet will get a much-needed lesson in AIDS prevention...and compassion...from all of this.

And what's with all the hot-button issues happening in Ohio all of a sudden?!?!?!
