Did you know that corporal punishment is legal in schools in 21 states.

Oh yea - Alaska is not one of them - they must be a gentler in nature than I thought.

This is not to you specifically but to the notion of generalizing - generally - there are state laws for the reason that each state is culturely different - so yes I do believe you can generalize about people - by state.

Spanking has been found to, legally speaking, NOT

Wow! Did you really go there!

Last I checked being from Alaska is not a race or a religion.

Which is why I said *IMO* it is child abuse to hit a child.

Sorry Lauren - not sure how to reply to all.

Anyway - I found an article with facts - and alot of generalizations you are going to hate.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A52899-2004Aug9.html

Guess what - using hot sauce is a wide spread practice - but only if you are Southern or Christian and they specifically call out those Louisianna moms.

All the experts agree - that it is not a good idea.

Good news - it is actually illegal in 1 state - Virginia.

I am feeling very lonely here - thinking I am the only one that feels this way - all I have to do is google "Alask - hot sauce" and read the comments - I am not alone.

Sure if you want to generalize about areas of the country or by state you can.
