Quote of the Day

Frank J. Fleming asks: Is it really a bullying crisis?

. . . Maybe kids have just gotten sissier.

It probably started with making kids wear bike helmets. Next, scientists put feathers on dinosaurs. Now vampires, instead of being murderous monsters, are sparkling and caring about their girlfriends’ feelings. Everything is sissier; it has to be affecting our kids.

We’re far removed from the days when children entertained themselves by shooting each other in the face with BB guns; childhood is now all about safety, being attuned to our emotions and avoiding peanut allergies.

This isn’t good for the country. Think: When Elvis was drafted, he at least looked capable of holding a rifle; you can’t say the same about Justin Bieber.

Even leaving aside the fact that Bieber is Canadian, no, I can’t picture him holding a rifle.

I can, however, picture him catching bullets, thanks to the folks at CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
