A school in Massachusetts has banned kids from playing tag, touch football and any other unsupervised chase game during recess for fear they’ll get hurt and hold the school liable. What!? School playgrounds are for playing! Is it any wonder that kids are shooting up their schools!? Maybe they should let the kids run and play, they’d be less dangerous.

Besides, aren’t kids in America fat enough even *with* the running at recess? Maybe they’re just going to ban recess altogether. Or ban schools and have kids just sit in front of televisions with a steady dose of edutainment, from the Edutainment Channel of course, and soda pumped directly into their bloodstreams. That would free the schools from liability, wouldn’t it? Big ups to Dave for the link.
