And To Think I Have To Read Out Of Town News To Find This...

Thank you, EdWonk, for reinforcing my vote.

A candidate for Oklahoma state superintendant of schools advocates "thick used textbooks placed under every student's desk so they can use them for self-defense during school shootings".

Fascinating. What a very Wonder Woman sight it would be to see my students using books as a shield.

Carry a book with you, friends. It's a rough world.

**Edited later to add!!**

This just in! News Channel 4 promises to show "what's in a book that could save your child's life!".

I need to move.

And if the textbook fails to stop the bullet it will give the family of the victim someone else to add to their law suit: the publishers of the textbook. Or maybe the state will have the new requirement of "bullet-proof" for inclusion as a state-approved textbook.

The word "hate" is high in calories and fat, very bad for you (and very delicious). One should use it sparingly.
