There is a time and a place for everything. No matter what side of the sex education issue you are on lets all agree that Middle School is hardly the place for a condom distribution. Not for some Wisconsin middle-school students who got to bring home some surprise souvenirs for their parents.
An AIDS education group was handing out the prophylactics at the health fair organized by North Central Health Care in Wausau. The idea was to educate the middle-schoolers on the dangers of alcohol and drugs.
