    Big Bertha Madras, White House deputy drug tsaritsa, told educators this week about a federal grant program for random drug testing of high school students in extracurricular activities.

    A fine idea. Maybe we can start with the president.

    I didn't know there were still some schools that didn't drug test.

    Chipping away, one civil liberty at a time.
  4. Earls v. Oklahoma says any kid in any extracurricular activity can be randomly tested, but that doesn't extend to just grabbing a kid in the hall, as far as I know. This is just fucking wonderful. Let's raise a generation of schoolchildren who don't know they have any rights so they won't know how to exercise them as grown-ups.

    I'm absolutely amazed so few people even raise questions about the propriety of programs that allow unwarranted invasions of privacy.

    What rights shall we give up next, folks?
  6. When people ask what damage the current hysteria over PED's can do to ordinary people, this is Exhibit A.

    We will all keep our mouths shut about The Party and just drink our Victory Gin.

    This testing happens to my child over my dead body.

    I remember writing a column for my high school paper after they used drug dogs to sniff the lockers.

    I said metal detectors and random drug testing weren't far behind.

    The principal pulled it, calling it hyperbole.

    I shit you not.
  10. Good not to be shitted.

    I considered farting in your general direction, but decided against that, too.
