Music: Neon Genesis Evangelion - Cruel Angel Thesis
This morning I saw Martha Stewart on the Today Show. She's peddling a book where she talks about how to have a passion for whatever it is that you're going to do with your life, and referenced women in prison having a whole lot of time to prepare for what they want to do with the rest of their lives. She made it clear that the book isn't -only- for people in prison. I should hope not.
My 5 year old niece in kindergarten was telling me about some crazy kid in her class. He gets a "red card" every day. Apparently this is like getting your name on the board with 5 checks behind it. The teacher talks to the parents every single day, and the kid is still a nut. He choked out some girl for apparently no reason (this is the 10th kid he's jumped on and tried to kill), and the teacher had a hard time pulling him off.
My niece said that if he jumped her like that she'd just yell for the teacher since she doesn't want to get a red card for fighting back. I told her that if she got a red card for fighting with -that- kid I'd put it in a frame. I'm kinda worried that that sort of thing will only get worse. The kids will just get bigger, stronger, and probably less sane as she gets older.
It's sad that the only way to deal with certain people is through violence. And this kid likes to choke out girls. I should kick his dad's ass.
And what's with these red cards? Is it because the southwestern USA is basically Mexico, and the people here know soccer, but not that getting your name on the board is a bad thing?
