Editorial Cartoon: School violence

Bullet proof vests and automatic handguns — recess ain’t what it used to be.

Extra bonus points for anyone who knows what’s wrong with the Auburn logo.

If you’re a fan of economics or statistics, I recommend the books Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics. They look at some interesting realities in the world around us and come to some intriguing conclusions. Anyway, they make a somewhat startling realization that there have been fewer military deaths in these years of war [against terror] than in typical peace-time years. I’m concerned that we have a generation of high school kids that might actually be safer in a war zone than in a school zone. Perhaps body armor should be on the official uniform list.
