I'll show you mine ... then get suspended

Oh, Lord, lock us ALL up. Are we trying to create a world in whcih adults cannot make any decisions and children are so sanitized that they don't learn how to be human? Here we have a first-grader suspended for sex harassment and thank God his mother is angry enough to sue the stupid school district.

Whether it's insulting judges with sentencing guidelines or this kind of "zero tolerance" bullsh*t, there is this inclination to fix one bad case of bad (or no) judgment with the solution of it's-not-up-to-you-to-decide.

Take me away, Judge. I played show and tell with a little boy down the street when I was about 6 or 7. As long as we're confessing, I ate some paste in third grade, too.
