Six-Year-Old Kindergartner Put Into Detention Over Tiny LEGO Gun Found In His Possession

When Zero means Zero….It refers to common sense…rather lack of any!


Lego-Toy-GunWe have yet another zero logic case out of our schools enforcing zero tolerance policies on guns. We have yet another case of lunacy in our schools as part of the zero tolerance policy regarding guns. We have previously explored how teachers and school administrators are expelling or suspending students for everything from finger guns to stick figures. (here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here). For a prior column, click here. Even nibbling a danish into a gun shape can get you expelled today. Now a 6-year-old kindergartner attending Old Mill Pond Elementary School in Palmer, Mass faced possible suspension or expulsion because he was spotted with a plastic Lego G.I. Joe gun — the size of a quarter — on to his school bus. After public outcry, the school decided that it would not…

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome on clothes and behavior…

Clothes alter our very nature. A man could not help being fierce and daring with a plume in his bonnet, a dagger in his belt, and a lot of puffy white things all down his sleeves.

Today’s Birthday: ELLY BEINHORN-ROSEMEYER (1907) A stunt pilot and winner of Hildenburg Cup

Elly Beinhorn-Rosemeyer (1907)

A contemporary of American aviatrix Amelia Earhart, German airwoman Elly Beinhorn-Rosemeyer began her flying career as a stunt pilot. She went on to make several daring solo flights and was awarded the Hindenburg Cup for her achievements. In 1936, she married racecar driver Bernd Rosemeyer, and the couple, allegedly with some reluctance, became darlings of the Nazi regime. Bernd was killed in a speed record attempt two years later.

Weeds Season 8 Ending scene Song is “With Arms Outstretched” By Rilo Kiley

Watch me fly away
Through the night sky yeah
Now that all you touched
Has finally turned gray
And roads can’t hold us down
Winds will move us around
With no need to returnto this gray town
Wanna bet I can tell
You’ve been in bed for too long
So let’s just say so long
And I watched you at the cove
You read on rocks below
And I turned homewithout so much as hello
Wanna know where I goI’ve been away for too long
And it’s hard to leave when I haven’t seen
You in so long
And if we had just held out for tomorrow
We might have seen
What seemed so far away
We didn’t even bother to stay
There it goes I can tell
You’re gonna to keep your eyes to the ground
Waiting for something to finally come around
Tell you that you knew
That you weren’t wrong
And it’s finally time for so long
