    I thought we called them "Public Schools" nowadays.

    Sensitivity training isn't anything new. When baseball's John Rocker made inflammatory comments in the 1990s, the league mandated he go through a sensitivity class (but Rocker later admitted that he snuck out after 15 minutes).

    It's a very ominous, doublespeakishly worded thing, whatever it is...

    Are Re-Education Camps That Far Fetched?

    Or are they already here?

    Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones was fined an undisclosed amount Sunday and will undergo educational training after sending negative tweets about Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL draft.

    Shortly after the St. Louis Rams took Sam in the seventh round Saturday, Jones tweeted “OMG” and “Horrible.” The tweets were taken down a short time later
