I have never been more proud of our freedom than after hearing this perfect display of irony.




Back to School Problems at Burroughs

Story: Back to School Problems at Burroughs

This might be the only school in the country where the swine flu isn’t the biggest health concern. Some PTA mothers are actually strapping up with face masks and telling parents to turn around and bring their kids back in a couple days. The school recently had some construction, and the PTA (who also apparently moon-light with the EPA), doesn’t feel the air quality is breathable yet. Is it just me, or is staying in school is becoming harder and harder?




Gun discharges in bookbag at Macon middle school

7 09 2009

It sounds like the student was practicing proper firearm safety by not aiming the gun at any people. It just stinks that he most likely ruined a brand new backpack during a time of economic crunch. His mom should teach him a lesson by making him use the bullet-hole riddled one the rest of the school year.




‘Education’ misspelled on CMS teacher coaster

7 09 2009

I hope North Carolina isn’t putting their best foot forward in this one. They distributed 1800 coasters as a teacher gift and misspelled the one word we hope they get right- Education. Is there anyone who wants to argue that Microsoft Word spellcheck hasn’t dumbed us all down a bit?

Story: Boy, 5, on wrong bus dropped off miles from home

It is easy to understand how a 5-year old can get on the wrong bus and be dropped off miles from his home when responsible adults aren’t doing their job. Hope he had some cab money to get home.




Texas Middle School Student Dies After Hot Football Practice

It didn’t matter that it was 105 degrees outside. Clearly a State Championship is more important.




Fla. students sent home over for anti-Islam shirts

7 09 2009

Several students were sent home from school in Gainesville for wearing shirts comparing Islam to the Devil. A pastor at a nearby church was handing them out to his followers. He claims, “spreading the church’s message is more important than education.” Well, I can see he certainly isn’t spreading a message of peace and love. But it makes for a good toss up question- Which is more boring- church or school?
