1967 Revisited. Hilarity Ensued

It’s all too true. I was there, so I know this first hand.

Scenario 2: Johnny and Mark get into a fistfight after school.1967 – Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2007 – Police are called, SWAT team arrives and arrests Johnny and Mark. They are charged with assault and both are expelled even though Johnny started it.

Scenario 3: Jeffrey won’t sit still in class, disrupts other students.

1967 – Jeffrey is sent to the principal’s office and given a good paddling. Returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.
2007 – Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. Becomes a zombie. Tested for ADD. School gets extra state funding because Jeffrey has a disability.

Definitely a read-the-whole-thing kind of post.
