The League of Women Voters of Wheaton invites the community to the program "Sex Offenders: A Difficult Subject That Needs to be Discussed" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, at Wheaton Community Center, 1777 S. Blanchard. Sex offending is an extremely difficult subject to discuss. If the term "child predator" is introduced most people grimace, become uncomfortable and quickly change the topic of conversation. This mind-set is entirely understandable but it is also misguided and can even be dangerous. Legislatures are labeled as being "soft on sex offenders" if they try to amend sex offenders laws.
