Today's "back to school" spot-the-insensitivity special. This one?
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Cancer has ravaged several of Ann Aberson's relatives, so she doesn't have a problem with her two teenage daughters wearing bracelets to raise awareness of breast cancer.
But their school principal does.
This week, Baltic High School, just north of here, became one of the latest across the USA to ban the rubber bracelet, which has a message some say is in poor taste: "I love boobies."
The bracelets have caused controversy in schools in states including California, Colorado, Idaho, Florida and Wisconsin. Some districts allow students to wear them inside-out, and others ban them.
Or this one?
You've seen the bumper stickers: "My child's an honor student," and the not-so-nice responses about what my kid could do to your honor student. But CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine found a new low in those insults - on mouse pads, advertised by one of America's best-known retailers.
It was part of a major back-to-school collection. Patty from St. Charles e-mailed CBS 2 about it.
"I was shopping at Sears online store," she wrote, "and I was shocked to find that they sell mouse pads, saying things like, 'I molested your honor student' and 'I got your honor student pregnant.'"
