What to give your sweetie for Valentine's Day 

An article in the local campus paper on V-Day suggests that Valentine's Day is a money-making holiday. It begins,
On Wednesday, many will celebrate the Hallmark holiday, Valentine's Day. Millions will be spent on flowers, condoms and chocolates.
I can forgive the ignorance of St. Valentine, since our students are no longer required to learn history in our general education program. But it IS odd that this student celebrates her version of V-day as somehow noncommercial while cl*t cookies dance around Atwood.
