Having seen the changes at more and more parks and schools, I was suspecting this, but it's hard to believe that some people want to:

Take the Play out of Playgrounds

I mean, WTF? Is it any wonder we're becoming a country of fat lazy couch potatoes? Either the kids learn to sit on their ass playing video games all day or they are "hyperactive" and get diagnosed with ADHD and they get prescribed drugs to deal with it.

Ugh. Whatever happened to letting kids be kids?

This is right up there with the whole "no one loses" thing that some schools do. No one wins, no one loses, hurray for mediocrity!

Jeez.


Kind of reminds me of this Eddie Izzard bit from D2K:

"What the fuck have you been smoking, eh? Certainly you haven't been smoking in a bar in California, that's for certain!" ‘Cause you can't! No, no smoking in bars now, and soon, no drinking and no talking! Be careful, California! You're supposed to be the crazy state, the out there, the wild ones, you know? In the future, everyone's going to say, "Come down to the library, we'll have a wild time, shall we? “

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
