Texas Polygamy Kids and Canadian Kids with Swastikas!

June 9, 2008

What in the kitty cat is the world coming to?  (My family is adopting kitty cat as the new good for all occasions swear word).

So the Texas kids were returned to their families and now this story about a kid coming to school with a swastika painted on her face.  Grounds for removal? 

When I read the headline I thought it was a tattoo (in which case I would argue yes even if the tattoo were of something less offensive — isn’t almost everything less offensive? — if it were on her face.  Make up makes it harder.  More investigation needed.  Perhaps I should head on up to Canada and find out more.  I only need a few minutes alone with the parents.

Undoubtedly there are real new e-mails peppered in this download, but can I really go through all of them? So if you are trying to e-mail me lately, I may have an even greater than usual liklihood of not getting back.

(Look at the headline on the first column and then Bush’s message to the pope next to it)

Here’s a screengrab of the image:

OK, LB, I do not have ‘permission’ to upload files. So, I’m going to send you the jpg and you can insert it.
