A middle school in Evanston, Ill., has issued a new dress code barring girls from wearing shorts, leggings and yoga pants to school, on the grounds that the leg-displaying garments are “distracting” to boys. Well, yeah. Google “ leggings images ” or, especially, “yoga pants images ,” and you'll see exactly what I mean. Especially if you have ever been - or been around - a boy between the ages of 11 and 14, the usual age range for middle school. But judging from the reaction of the feminist media - and here's what's really surprising, some parents of the kids in question - you'd think that the school, Haven Middle School, had decided to require head-to-toe burkas.

Though not credited as a remake, "Breaking the Girls" takes the basic premise of "Strangers on a Train," the Patricia Highsmith novel famously adapted to the screen by Alfred Hitchcock - I'll kill for you if you'll kill for me - and transports it to the modern day. Law student Sara (Agnes Bruckner) has had a run of misfortune brought on in no small way by a jealous classmate, costing her a job, a scholarship and a place to live. She also meets the rich, troubled Alex (Madeline Zima), setting in motion a series of events to solve all their problems.

The murder-kidnapping case has prompted a major manhunt through the South and has put the suspect on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted fugitive list. Now, people close to the families involved have come forward with a possible motive that threatens to turn the case from Greek tragedy to Southern Gothic. In interviews with media outlets, they describe Adam Mayes, being sought on murder and kidnapping charges, as a man wanting to be reunited with children he believed he fathered with a woman authorities allege he killed.
