ABC News: Parents Consider Legal Action After Autistic Girl, 8, Arrested at School  

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Eight year old girl is cuffed and arrested because she wouldn't take off her sweatshirt. Ok, it's a little more than that but, the whole thing could have been avoided if the teacher would have ignored the sweatshirt. I don't know what goes on in the school district where this happened but, here at our school students are molded into little tolerant robot's. With coping skills that include "talk it out" or "walk away". Instead of ignoring the girls apparel the teacher kept her against her will in a classroom and then physically restrained her when she tried to leave the room. Remember, autistic children often have over reactive sensory perceptions. This girl has been at the school since kindergarten and I would think that the teachers have had plenty of opportunity to observe the girls reactions to various situations. None of this behavior was exactly new. I hope that the parents do sue the school and get boat loads of money. With that money they will be able to care for and educate their asperger daughter better than the public school can.

Some People Should Not Be Allowed To Own Computers (and don't even ask about the cell phone)

Take my mil for instance. She called me on Monday with a request for our presence at a birthday party for fil. The date she wanted was already booked. I explained this and offered to send two of the five members of our family to the party. If mil wants to see all of us then she could schedule for the following weekend. She was reluctant to firm up that date and told me to discus with dh.

I emailed her a recap of our phone call and told her to plan on the following weekend when we could all be there. The next day she emailed and wondered again what date she should pick. To which I replied that if she would plan it for the date I gave her we would all be able to attend.

Now it's Thursday and here comes another email (I get the impression that she only knows how to send email) from her wanting to know what to do. Ya see this is her MO. She does it to everyone. Just keeps talking and harping til whoever she is talking to finally relents and gives her what she wants. It's been a test of wills between her and me for over 25 years now. Ya think she'd know by know that I will not be thwarted. LOL

Really, in the beginning this little game would turn snarky on my part. Now I just try to ignore it most of the time but, I've got stress this week and don't need the extra drain on my bandwidth.

She seems bound and determined to get me to cancel at least one major function so that we can drive six hours and eat a meal and turn around and drive six hours home. Oh, and then there's the dog to consider. What am I gonna do with the dog?..... cripes

I guess I shouldn't really worry about this at all since by the time March finally rolls around we may be asking mil/fil if we can move in with them. OH JOY

Andrew Breitbart Launch's Bighollywood

This site appears to be dedicated to movie reviews and articles about celeb's with a conservative slant. It's great to see all this stuff in one place rather than having to search for it or happen on it by accident.

The articles/contributor's I read were informative, well written and thought provoking. And full of laughs as well. I hope this new site is a success for Mr. Breitbart.
