A slight change

That 6-year-old Hoagland Elementary student who slapped a classmate on the bottom isn't going to be cited for "sexual harassment" after all:

The boy's mother said an administrator for East Allen County Schools called her Wednesday and said the wording in paperwork detailing the incident would be changed, which this morning she was told would be something along the lines of “indecent behavior.”

I dunno. "Indecent behavior" doesn't sound much better.

My first wife used to tell me the reason she could catch a lot of fish and I didn't was that the fisherman needs to be smarter than the fish. Maybe the reason America's schools do such a poor job of educating students is that the people running the schools need to be smarter than the kids.

They do a good job of running an athletic program, though. Maybe we can all watch football games, while the folks in India and China get the good jobs.

Well, it's East Allen. As we know from past administrative actions there, it's paramount that all punishments must be made to respect the nebulous religious sensibilities supposedly held by the East Allen populace. A six-year-old slapping another's bottom is unquestionably an act of carnal lust.

Of course, when I was a six-year-old, the administrators were the ones slapping my bottom. Does that mean I've been molested? Eeew.
