Dumb principals, cont'd

Here's the grammar school insanity story of the day.

"District spokesman Randy Wall said school administrators are stuck in the precarious position between the district's zero tolerance policy against having weapons at school and common sense."

I'm not sure common sense ever entered the picture.

So once the metal blade as out of the plastic case it became a wepon? Same could be said of the sharpened pencil.
Morons, all of them.

Zero tolerance guarantees nonzero stupidity.

It doesn't have to be sharp to be a weapon. No more books in the school, somebody could be beaten with one of them. ;)

I used to go to a high school run by such a pocket egomaniac: in fact, he got national exposure in 1982 when he came up with the absolutely brilliant idea of offering a cash reward to any students who turned in the names of anyone allegedly dealing drugs on campus. Let us never mind that he never actually got any dealers, that the worst problem with drugs on the whole campus came from the school football team locker room and those little darlings were sacrosanct, and that all this did was become a tool for the overly vindictive to harrass anybody their clique didn't like. Never mind that this was aggravated by his insisting upon strip searches of the victims. He had a positive tropism for TV cameras, and nobody bothered to note, until nearly a year later, that the high school didn't really have a drug problem until me made one.

The slimeball recently got a high school actually named after him, which is why I'm waiting for the logic to continue by seeing a psychiatric institute named after Charles Manson. It'll go really well with the George W. Bush Presidential Library.

"until me made one"

Naturally, I meant "he".
