Two absurdities for the morning. Charles passed along a girl suspended for drawing stick figures of her teachers with arrows through their heads, aaaand, the headline reads "Man Held in Brutal Beating of Mother", what leaped out at me was:

"Some areas of the apartment appeared to have been cleaned, maybe to destroy evidence," Dixon said.

See: If I clean up, and someone gets beaten near my house, I'm a suspect. This is why I don't clean up.

It just hit me: Can she just say she was drawing Steve Martin images?

Regarding the first absurdity, can it be much longer before students can be suspended for gritting their teeth? I still maintain that the drop in overall violence and rise in incidents of extreme violence stems from all forms of physical aggression, including the mildest forms, being severly punished.
