    Sending your 7 year old to school with a swastika on her body isn't funny but the mother's explanation is:

    WINNIPEG–She freely admits that her 7-year-old daughter was sent to school sporting a swastika – the Nazi emblem adopted as a symbol of racially motivated hate groups.

    She says she's not a neo-Nazi, just proud of her northern European heritage.

    And here's the quote that all us folks with Scottish ancestry will embrace:

    "I would never consider myself a neo-Nazi," she said. "I consider myself a proud Scottish chick."

    And this is a city that wants an NHL franchise? :)

    Where do we find these people?

    If she is, indeed, a proud Scottish chick (and a proud Canadian), then she should, at least, have a passing knowledge of the Essex Scottish Regiment. The Canadian regiment, complete with pipes and tartans, fought well at Dieppe before being slaughtered at Verrierres Ridge, opening the way for the break out from the Normandy beaches.

    That, you silly woman, is something worthy of pride.
