JENKINS: 50 shades of misogyny and violence against women

It’s time we started telling our young women (and young men, too, for that matter) the truth: that allowing yourself to be alone with a person you just met is risky behavior. So is having casual, indiscriminate sex with someone you barely know. So is drinking to the point of passing out.

JENKINS: Chivalry might not be dead, but it certainly seems to be on life support

JENKINS: Being involved in your kids' school isn't really optional anymore

JENKINS: The real enemy isn't socialism, it's "fascism light"

JENKINS: Finding balance doesn’t necessarily require a circus act

JENKINS: Why isn’t UGA football better than it is?

The problem for Georgia fans is that they have a good football program, maybe even a very good football program. It’s just not an elite football program, one that competes regularly for national championships. Whatever the reason, the Dawgs can’t seem to get over that hump.
