    Would it be called “Gender Profiling” or “Good Policing” if it turned out that the majority of those recieving tickets for babbling on the cell phone while driving were women?

  • smh

    Women are far and away the worst offenders. I can’t tell you how many soccer moms I see driving around Reston with a car load of kids and ear on the phone. Probably talking about what Wine they are going to drink at next Book Club, or Bunco.

    Karen Garza is making another bad decision by removing Bunsen burners from chemistry labs. The world is a dangerous place and students in her district need to learn how to properly use open flames if they hope to reach their potential as burger flippers.

      Today’s paste eaters can’t handle Bunsen burners… So chem lab will go something like this…

      Today we are going to make pretend Ammonia (NH4).. First mix your pretend iron fillings, pretend potassium hydroxide, and your pretend potassium nitrate in a pretend test tube. Hold your pretend test tube over your pretend bunsen burn, and pretend that there is now Ammonia come out of your pretend test tube. You can measure the existance of your pretend Ammonia by holding a piece of pretend litmus paper at one end of your pretend test tube.
