Yeah, teachers would really watch their irresponsible use of homework assignments if they knew their students were packin' heat.

It brings a whole new meaning to the term "student critique".

Don't be ridiculous. Here's a much better idea: Wisconsin lawmaker wants teachers to carry guns

REW, who isn't sure being referred to as a "research ferret" is an insult or a compliment...

Re: Now Bush wants a summit on school gun violence next week, Geesh,

Does anyone see a sort of macro-problem that has spilled out from the Middle East edge and is now here, domestically? There's been a recent increase in deranged men killing innocent children, taking the lives of the most innocent in a place, supposedly, of great safety, our schools.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism

I'm certainly not saying cause-effect. But could some correlation be creeping in somehow, that frustrated, warped individuals see no other outlet for their anger but those who . . . least deserve it. Is this possible?

Well, Scott Adams has turned "weasel" into such a pejorative term and "mole" is already gone... what else are we supposed to use? Badgers? Bunnies? Prairie dogs? Meerkats?

I think most people could learn alot from the reaction of the Amish. They mourned without anger.

Re: Now Bush wants a summit on school gun violence next week, Geesh,

Saw a guy on CBS that said it was the fault of a.) teaching evolution in schools and b.) abortion.

Just like with the sex thing.. Where Are the F'n Parents!?!?!?

And why is it now right-wingers who are blaming "society"? Isn't that what they couldn't stand about "liberals"?
