A Subterranean Perspective

C'mon, Get a Hobby!

My brother-in-law is a public school principal in a small Texas town. He knows how I feel about those government indoctrination centers, but that is a topic for another day.

I was talking to him a few days ago and he mentioned some of the odd things that the students are wearing. He was talking about the bizarre colored contacts (something which I thought of many years ago. I wanted mirrored or glow-in-the-dark ones). I said I thought that was really cool. He said that he has had townspeople call him after seeing kids with them after school hours and ask if they are allowed by the dress code! As if the school should regulate what the kids wear after school! This is when I told him he should tell those "concerned citizens" that they really needed to get a hobby!

It is no wonder society is so messed up. People are so worried that someone is not "conforming" that they make it their business to meddle with things that hurt no one in any conceivable way. It explains a lot.
