IF YOU SPIN AN ORIENTAL PERSON IN A CIRCLE THREE TIMES, DO THEY BECOME DISORIENTED?

NOT-SO-ZERO TOLERANCE: In hindsight, says Principal Gary Anger of Red Pine Elementary School in Eagan, Minn., it was "unwise" to allow it. After students graduated from an anti-drug program, they were given certificates, cake, and helium balloons. After the party, several of the balloons had floated into the gym's ceiling, so Anger allowed a parent to bring in a BB gun to shoot them down. There is a zero tolerance weapons policy in the district, and students have been expelled for bringing lesser "weapons" than that to school. When parents complained about the double standard, Anger told a reporter that "in retrospect, it was probably a dumb thing to do," then e-mailed parents that "It is my hope that my decision did not send a mixed message regarding the importance of safety at Red Pine Elementary," and then went back to work. (Minneapolis Star Tribune) ...Sure it was "unwise". But how does a trained professional get to continue in his job when inexperienced children who do the same thing get expelled from school for life?
