Why does she have a column?

Would someone please explain to me why Liz Moody has a regular column, not to mention masthead billing? She is described as a local high school graduate and university student, yet her columns focus on drug and alcohol use, unsafe sex (was she bragging about passing an AIDS test in spite of herself?), and, the latest, about attending the S&M festivities in San Francisco. While she has the right to express herself, does this stereotyping of young persons' interests actually attract readers and advertisers in our Bee?
