Kansas gone crazy

What the hell is the matter with Kansas? Do you think the genetically modified corn is mushing their brains? First they mandate ID in science classes and now they forbid the speaking of foreign languages, e.g., Spanish within the school walls?
"It was, like, totally not in the classroom," the high school junior said, recalling the infraction. "We were in the, like, hall or whatever, on restroom break. This kid I know, he's like, 'Me prestas un dolar?' ['Will you lend me a dollar?'] Well, he asked in Spanish; it just seemed natural to answer that way. So I'm like, 'No problema.' "
A teacher overheard that conversation, sent them to the prinicpal and they were immediately suspended. These are sort of people that complain the ACLU protects too many rights. They're the reason we needed the ACLU in the first place.

Do you think that they could, you know, like maybe, like enforce some English grammar rules in school instead? Like, totally.

I posted about this same incident a couple of days ago on my blog. The article I linked to quoted the teacher as saying something like "this isn't Mexico, and this isn't Germany" in justifying the suspension. Go figure.
