The Nanny State strikes again

I know we want to keep kids relatively safe and there are good reasons why some of the things we all did when I was in grade school aren't allowed today. I thought banning dodge ball was going a little too far. Principles in Spokane Washington don't think that was far enough. They have banned playing tag! Come on people. The nuns made us play it only on the grass which made sense, less risk of skinned up arms and legs and we had plenty of grass. But to ban tag all together? Are we going to put them in crash proof bubbles next? No wonder all the boys are addicted to video games. Nobody lets them have any normal, real world fun any more.
