Where does the good go

Fun with red states

A Colorado Springs elementary school is banning the game of tag on its playground — after some children complained that they’d been chased or harassed against their will.

Assistant Principal Cindy Fesgen of the Discovery Canyon Campus school said running games will be allowed, as long as students don’t chase each other.

Hey, Colorado…SMACK. You’re it.

    uh, hello, isn’t that the point of playing tag? chasing each other and bopping them on the head? right.

    Unfortunately, Colorado is becoming less red by the day. Banning tag seems like the liberal nutters, not the conservative ones.

    If I have kids they are going to play with lawn darts (I have some old pointy ones before they were banned), have a metal swingset and never ever use antibacterial soap. We’ve been raising a generation of weak mollycoddled children for too long!

    And in a year, they’re going to wonder why all the kids are fat and sluggish. Let’s take away every shred of exercise that a kid can get. And then, after school, lets feed them a box of pop-tarts and park them in front of a video game. At least that way, they won’t get hurt.

    Beat me to it. Did you know that recess is a mandated part of school in only three states out of 50? And those three don’t even designate the amount of time, so some counties count ten minutes of play as recess?

    Friggin’ ridiculous.
