    Cloudy thinking? Colorado 8-year-old in trouble for gun picture

    As the Memorial Day holiday weekend looms, KVI’s John Carlson spent part of Friday morning’s early drive time talking about a report from Colorado’s KKTV News about an 8-year-old elementary school student who got in trouble for going outside, looking at clouds and drawing something from his imagination, in this case the crude outline of a pistol.

    I am sure it would have been OK though if he drew a bong.

    Zero tolerance = zero intelligence.

    If we are going to employ people with no judgement, and no backbone to be school administrators we should pay them accordingly. Minimum wage seems fair.

    While your kids are likely getting a better education im afraid the liberal attitude is much the same, private or public.
