Zero-Tolerance For Closed-Minded Idiots

Laughing at the closed-minded idiots in the news tonight.

First, from Indiana, a local crackdown on nekkidity in art. Personally, I’ve had problems with Michelangelo’s David for years. Not because of his genitals, but those damn unattainable abs. Art should make me feel good, not like an aging slacker.

But of course the big winner in tonight’s post is Salem, Oregon, high school principal Cynthia Richardson. Because of her school’s zero-tolerance policy on guns, she refused to allow a student to post a picture of an alumnus, a U.S. Marine serving overseas, who happens to be holding a firearm. What’s more scary than the policy is the fact that she probably does try to enforce it. She probably does try and teach WW2 and the Holocaust without photos of weapons. Can’t let the little one’s see that pesky picture of Washington crossing the Delaware with big, bad muskets either. I’ll be she’s there with her Sharpee removing offensive images of weapons from the textbooks and cutting the pictures out of Time and Newsweek to protect the delicate little minds in her charge. God forbid they be exposed to the real world (or even classical art) before they turn eighteen.
