You Know It Is a Slow News Day When...

CNN does a story on whether or not hugging should be allowed in middle school. It appears there is a school in Oak Park, Illinois in which classes have been disrupted and kids have been late due to the persistent hugging going on. The principal had to bring this to a stop we are told!

To stop hugging in middle school -- the place where people begin to really appreciate the opposite sex, seems as likely as stopping prayer in school on test days -- is next to impossible. I guess it will be interesting to see how the petition drive goes to reverse such a decision.

Anyway, my point was in writing this post is that it must be a slow news day when CNN makes this an important enough story for them to cover. In fact, they even want viewers to vote on the subject. My thought is that this is an indication of a slow news day. So slow that I'm writing an article about the media struggle to find something worth talking about.
