Panty-waists

Officials at an Arizona school suspended a 13-year-old boy for sketching what looked like a gun, saying the action posed a threat to his classmates.

That's the first line from the FOXNews story on the subject.

A better first line would have been "Hysterical school administrators grossly over-reacted to a bad drawing of a gun, wrongly suspending the 13 year-old budding artist from school."

The second line should read "The school board announced the immediate firing of the administrators, saying 'We don't want anyone this stupid involved with the education of our children.'" But as we all know, that won't happen in this lifetime. While the administrators may be forced by public pressure (or a lawsuit) to back off, they will never admit they screwed up, and they will never pay a price for doing so.

No wonder people home school.
