So what can we do to make our points--to get across the messages that may be missed in sex education classes or not covered in girls' room chatter or boys' locker room bragging. I'll go with a video or two. The screen speaks to most kids, so we may as well employ the medium that has the best chance of conveying the messages we want to share.

Love in Los Angeles? You want to know about love in Los Angeles?

Granted, when the Broadway lyricists E.Y. Harburg and Billy Rose wrote "Paper Moon" with Harold Arlen in 1933, hoping the song would find its way west and into a movie and make them MGM-style rich, they may not have mentioned L.A. outright.
