Itzel Guerrero can't imagine her life without the Wooden Floor. She tries to picture it sometimes, but fails. Most likely, she doesn't want to. So many experiences during her 18 years have taken root in the nonprofit's Santa Ana campus, she admits. Growing up in a household where her older sister Elideth was a gymnast - an expensive undertaking - Guerrero recalls there being no resources for her extracurricular activities. When she was 9, her parents took their friend's advice, introducing their daughter to the world of dance with a hunch that she might enjoy it. Turns out, they were right.

I'm a journalist and, of course, I believe in free speech. However, certain lines are drawn all the time. For example, I don't know of a video game or telephone app that teaches players how to abuse children. However, there's now what I believe to be a comparable app through which participants can learn to "train" dogs to fight one another. The goal is for the winner to rip the other dog to shreds. The tagline on the "game," called "KG Dogfighting," is "Raise your dog to be the best.

Q: I have a question regarding prolonging life. My mom had a stroke and the doctor insisted she'd have pain without a feeding tube. I don't believe this is true. In any case, do I have a moral obligation to have a feeding tube inserted when there's no chance of improvement? A: If your mom is dying from the stroke, you don't need to put in a feeding tube. If she's not dying, you do need to put in the tube or risk allowing her to starve. You face a critical medical and spiritual moment where a line divides prolonging life through clinically-approved therapeutic medical treatments (which is always the religious imperative)
