    I didn't know there were schools that did drug tests to begin with.

    Is the money there to do this kind of testing?
    I'm not sure testing is really needed. I know people say that the only way kinds get caught now is if they're really stupid, but given how many kids I've seen suspended or kicked off teams in the last few years, it seems like there are an awful lot of stupid kids out there.

    Nice work yourself.

    The Tech kid and the DC snipers proved that you cannot assume that a random rampaging killer will always be a white male. That is why I typed Asian. This was the case pre-DC snipers. They had us looking for a white guy in a box truck. I guess the Caprice Classic from New Jersey just got lumped in with the thousands that I see driving around Virginia right now.

    You can never predict crazy.

    You know what? You are a fucking idiot. I guess you never refer Yao Ming as a Chinese basketball player, or any of the number of Japanese baseball players as being from Japan.

    It's just a proper adjective. It's nothing to get all worked up about. I don't go crazy if someone calls me Croatian or Slovak.

    There are always two extreme sides to a problem, and the correct answer almost always lies in the middle of the two.

    full circle: testing is not the center.

    I thought about this for a while before I posted.

    What I can come up with is:

    I want to know if my kid is doing drugs.

    I do not want the school to be the one testing him/her. It should be a family matter.

    True. I don't know if I totally agree with the Supreme Court on this one, but it is the law.

    No, but sometimes you get fired or thrown in jail is you do not go along with their decisions in certain areas.
