today is my news day I guess...

Some things just set me off... and I don't have anyone to discuss with it... so it ends up here.

Sorry.

BUT...

Some parents in this prairie town are angry with an elementary school music teacher for showing pupils a video about the opera "Faust," whose title character sells his soul to the devil in exchange for being young again.

give me a break...

Robby Warner - a parent of one of the students said, "Any adult with common sense would not think that video was appropriate for a young person to see. I'm not sure it's appropriate for a high school student,"

Guess what Robby???? Tons of High School students are afflicted by plays such as this!! I saw numerous plays written by shakespear that involved, hold your breath, CROSS DRESSING and and and, BETRAYAL, oOOOOOh, SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH YOUR MOTHER!!!! Holy hell in a handbasket, what is the world coming to!!?? Look at how that deviant form of art known as CLASSIC LITERATURE turned me into the scum that I am today!!

School Superintendent George Sauter said the teacher should not have shown the video to children below the fourth grade but will not lose her job.

Okay, suicide and the devil might be a little strong for fourth graders... but I do not agree with Robby, High Schoolers can handle that kind of stuff, and open discussion of it is HEALTHY.

the Teacher responded with this: "I was definitely not sensitive to the conservative nature of the community, and I've learned that," Waggoner said in Sunday's editions of The Denver Post. "However, from what has been said about me, that I'm a Satan worshipper, my character, I can't believe all of this. My intention was just to expose the kids to opera."

Wow. Satan is going to flex his muscle on the world by using... OPERA!!!! *gasp* Watch out world! If your not careful, you'll be 'gone to the americans'! or something.

this over conservative attitude the US is taking on SICKENS me. Just yesterday, an online game I play (city of heroes) censored the word "fist". so, if I had the 'potty mouth' filter on, I could not say "I hurt my fist today at work." it would come out like this "I hurt my *bleep* today at work." Dumb, just plain dumb.
