    Not a fan of litigation as a means to solve problems, but this school district is a bunch of dumb bastards and deserve anything they get. Firing a cannon with a stress fracture and seemingly doing it without insurance?

    Then people saying that "he is the one who chose to stand next to an exploding object?" Actually, he chose to take part in ROTC and had every reason to believe the activities he would partake in were thoroughly vetted for his safety so long as he followed directions.

    The douchebag minority of humanity, as exemplified by the assholes who care more about a fucking cannon tradition than another human being, is the reason why we are all fucked, in general.

    You of earth are idiots!

    Well, at least it'll keep him out of Iraq and far away from other numbskulls (like staff officers) who would wilfully put his health in even greater jeopardy.

    Yeah, well, sorry, rook. You're wrong this time.

    This whole issue has a hell of a lot more to do with conservatives vs. liberals than many want to admit.

    Hate to tell you, newb, but Shottie's not one of the board libs.

    And the people at that school are obviously scum.

    Sadly, people in Snohomish are hardly alone in going all Teyve when it comes to TRADITION!

    Lemont High in Illinois this school year started playing as the Indians, ending a long, contentious battle over the school's stupid nickname. Since 1969, it had been Injuns, and the school board, in its infinite wisdom, last year changed the name to Titans. But the community in April voted out anyone on the ballot who voted against Injuns. The board now had a 4-3 Injuns majority. However, realizing the school couldn't go back to Injuns just like Pekin High can never again be the Chinks, the board instead tossed Titans for Indians. (I'm not sure if the school ever used Titans -- I believe for a while it was officially nicknameless.) Strange thing is, the new mascot logos have no Indian imagery whatsoever. So Lemont High can host NCAA events.

    Here's an idea ... with the cannon out of commission (for a while at least) the good douchebags of Snohomish (I've been there many times ... it really is a nice town) can get their share of bangs by having a "bring your own pipebomb" contest. They can work it in for football next year, but in basketball season, every 3-point "bomb" can be celebrated with an IED explosion.
