The Summer of '09

The Summer of '09

Just a quick note from the Pop Culture Desk. In 1971, the notion of a 14- or 15-year-old boy having sex with an Army wife was celebrated in a very popular Hollywood movie. In 2009, in the real world, the exact same thing is landing the woman in jail for as long as two years. (Partly because unlike "The Summer of  '42," the husband was still alive, and found out about it.) 

 You think maybe our society is a tad conflicted on this front?
