    Elementary school outlaws playing tag, 'running in packs'

    New Groningen kindergarten teachers in Grand Rapids, Michigan caused some consternation amongst parents recently with a letter they sent home that banned the game of tag and other chase-oriented games. The letter described the problem of children, "running in packs, pushing, knocking other children over, and making the game dangerous," which as we recall, was half the fun of the game. "We want our children to treat each other with respect, kindness, and with safety in mind," said Ginger Smith, community relationship manager for Zeeland Public Schools, on Friday, in an attempt to clarify the situation. Apparently, neither the school nor the district have received any direct complaints from parents regarding the policy, but at least one did contact the media.

    I guess that's supposed to take care of the 6th sign of the Apocalypse...lawlessness.

    At most events and a lot of pubs in Australia (after 9pm) glass bottles and beer glasses and what not are banned and replaced with plastic. Some places even ban cans after a certain point in time.
