    Solitary confinement for kid on camping trip who brought a small knife - nice outing!

    http://news.yahoo.com/fifth-grader-s...012034230.html

    A fifth-grader in Cupertino, California was suspended and threatened with expulsion for bringing a small Swiss Army knife on a school-sponsored, science-oriented camping trip.

    Consequently, Bandermann told TheDC, school officials forced Braden to serve a one-day suspension at camp. He was allegedly isolated in a teacherís lounge area from all the other children. He was forced to eat meals by himself. He was forced to sleep in an area separate from all the other children. He missed an entire day of activities.

    Actually, I think he got quite the education. It's just that science is no longer the education they wish us to have.

    How can you go camping without a knife?
    What kind of wussy "camping" trip were they offering?

    Most of high school I carried a swiss army knife, wherever I was.
    No fuss, no blood (mine or anyone else).

    Not sure why you would start down this path in a completely unrelated thread, but it's been proven wrong for quite some time now. Some just haven't caught on yet, give it time.

    Thank you, you beat me to it.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
