    Default Hugs not drugs? Not here!

    Oak Park school bans hugs


    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Published Tuesday, October 02, 2007


    OAK PARK — There’s a new rule at Percy Julian Middle School this year: No hugging.

    The policy says that hugging is not allowed among the suburban Chicago school’s 860 students anywhere inside the building. At issue were students forming “hug lines” that made them late for classes and crowded the hallways, said Victoria Sharts, the school’s principal.
    “Hugging is really more appropriate for airports or for family reunions than passing and seeing each other every few minutes in the halls,” Sharts said.

    Another reason to institute the no-hugging policy was that some hugs could be too long and too close, Sharts said.

    “There is another side to the issue when a hug is either unwanted or becomes inappropriate as judged by one of the students involved,” Sharts wrote in a statement to parents. “On occasion, we do deal with those incidents. The goal is always to promote safe and orderly hallways where everybody can get by, be safe, and be on time.”

    Hugs are also not allowed at Amazon.com, even if you are dating, engaged or married. You can not show any affection toward your significant other, which I think sucks.

    My fiancee and I got in trouble for this 2 years ago, when we would go back to work after breaks/lunch we would give each other a little peck.

    Well, the principal obviously doesn't have somebody to love. Why would you if your last name was "Sharts"?

    And just today, the IL legislature overrode the Governor's veto of a bill that requires a minute of silence in schools. Think of the learning that will be lost or how many kids will fall asleep during that moment. The politicians obviously have nothing better to do with their time and power.

    I love this Land of Lincoln.

    Haha!

    And how often will this be enforced? Honestly?

    Only in Illinois...
