At Least They're Not Your Legislators
And for another edition of "At Least They're Not Your Legislators," we take you to Boulder, where hugging has been banned at Centennial Middle School. No, really. From 9News.com:

Centennial Middle School administration says there is too much hugging going on and it's gotten out of control. The students are not happy about it.

"I mean, how are you supposed to say 'bye' to your girlfriend?" Centennial Middle School eighth-grader Noah Hahn asked the Boulder Daily Camera.

The school has officially banned hugs in the hallways. Students say administrators have asked them to high-five instead.

1. Saw on channel 4 that the principal (I think) challenged the
Camera's article and gave an explanation on how it may have come about. Sorry, don't know the details because I was drinking beer with my neighbor at the time!

2. So where does this leave us?
Colorado offers the following to the world:

Focus on the Family
Jim "Homosexuality = Beastiality" Welker
No hugging in school
Marilyn Musgrave

We're not exactly doing the nation proud this year.

3. Everytime I feel like we are heading in the right direction...
...we end up doing something stupid. Even in our so-called "deep-blue" areas.

4. Sure, they've banned hugging...
...but the Pro-High-Five lobby should be thrilled. :shrug:
