......we can get on to frivolous protests! You may not be aware of this, but today is apparently the national day of silence to protest the bad treatment of gay kids in our schools. The deal is that kids will sign-up and commit to remaining silent in school all day, in recognition of......well I really don't know what they're recognizing, but it surely is critically important.
Coming soon, "national gluttony day" to support fat kids, and then "national tortoise shell glasses with adhesive tape day" to support nerds, then "national audio/visual helper day" and "national nobody invited me to the prom day". The possibilities are endless and no doubt will ultimately lead to "national I couldn't get into college because we never learned a bloody thing in school day".
And people wonder why my kids are in private school.
