    7th grader told to cover up Starwars shirt, cause storm troopers encourage violence??

    I heard a snippet on this just before i had to leave for work yesterday.. So when i got back from work, i had to look it up. I was too incensed to post anything last night, so left it to tonight, so i could calm down..

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.2464792

    So apparently, the Texas school admin thought this shirt showing the new Storm troopers, "Glorified violence"..

    What the heck over???

    In related news, a Head master at a school in Brooklin says no more to thanks giving, Christmas AND saying the pledge of allegiance..
    So i guess that dean is ok working on Dec the 25th at REGULAR pay!

    Since it is sheer stupidity Texas is the place you would most expect it. Texas refuses to be outdone in any form of stupidity.

    Rainmaker saw a bumper sticker the other day that said "Don't Mess With Texas. But, Don't F#ck With New York!"

    My wife got this very stylish car magnet, and gave it to me early, for Christmas. The thought contained may be a bit dated for some of you guys. Or not.

    Humor fail and evidently another fail at 'getting' a post. The radio in your head really only has one static-filled channel doesn't it?

    Here comes the bitching about tax dollars being spent for hours of non-productivity...
