This Week in Crazy
(OK, technically it was last week in crazy.)
Poor eight-year-old Ethan Harris (not shown above) was suspended from his Colorado elementary school for sniffing a Sharpie (see below). For three whole days! (His sentence was reduced to one day when his parents raised a fuss.)
I understand that sniffing certain stuff can be pretty bad for your brain cells. But I have a feeling the kid just thought it smelled good. (Which I completely understand.) Next you know, there will be paste-eating bans throughout the country. Magic markers will be forbidden. Scissors will be sold on schoolyard black markets.
I say FREE ETHAN HARRIS--before it's too late!
Full story here.
