What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?I think it's unfair to the girls on the list because it's so public.

How evil were you in high school?I did a lot of bad things. I went to a very strict high school with a lot of rules, and I broke them. When I was 16, I was nearly kicked out for drinking.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?I don't know who to send this message to, but maybe if I addressed it to President Bush, he'd get it to the right person: "Please change the student visa rules so that we can all work legally."

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?People have a right to say what they want, but their subjects also have a right to sue. It's all graffiti, whether it's on a wall or on the Internet, and they shouldn't be suspended for it. These days high schools are trying to balance free expression with safety. Kids get suspended for joking with their friends and saying, "We have a test today, I should blow up the school to get out of it."

How evil were you in high school?Not very.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?The Bush girls. I'd say, "Stop going to bars and get better fake ID."

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?I think it's tactless, but they shouldn't be suspended for it. The quality of things on the Internet will vary as widely as the quality of literature and television.

How evil were you in high school?I was a good student, but I was on the outside as far as things like clothes were concerned.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?Mayor Giuliani. My message would be, "Watch out, because the women are going to bite you in the ass."

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?I don't know. If you post the graffiti from the bathroom in a bar, a bar you have to be 18 years old to get into, and my six-year-old nephew gets online and reads it, is that a problem?

How evil were you in high school?Did I do things I didn't want my parents to know about? Yes.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?Since I work with families, I'd send one to Hillary Clinton: "If it takes a village, what's your part of the village?"

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?It's high school! This kind of thing happens all the time in high school. This is just an electronic version of a slam book.

How evil were you in high school?I wasn't.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?Justice Scalia. I'd say, "The Supreme Court doesn't decide elections."

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?Embarrassing someone isn't a crime, but at the same time I don't like the idea of kids that age disrespecting women.

How evil were you in high school?I did my own thing. After my freshman year, when I skipped classes, I straightened up and was on the honor roll.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to?I'd send a message to the great musician Fela, who's now on the other side. I'd say, "You're the man. Send some spirit down."

What do you think about kids posting sexual gossip about classmates on the Internet?I guess it's not such a great idea, although the people who are most upset are probably the ones who got a bad rating. When I was in high school, the whole thing would have been forgotten about by three o'clock.

How evil were you in high school?The worst thing I did was to tease people.

What famous person would you like to send an anonymous message to? I'd send one to Janet Jackson and ask, "Do you and Michael have the same plastic surgeon?"
