A delightful extra-curricular activity from suburban St. Louis. What rapscallions.

That is just plain sad. What would cause some kids to add that activity to the Spirit Week activities? I sincerely hope that those kids get some major counciling, and perhaps some lessons in the classroom about treating all people with respect!!

This is just ghastly.
I find myself wondering if this was inspired by some bad joke on South Park?

I am certainly not defending the kids’ behavior, but I’m not sure it was fueled by raw anti-Semitism. The kids had “Hit a Tall Person” day, etc. It appears they were looking for “classifications” of people to go after. Jewish kids were probably an easily identifiable group.
To be clear, I’m not making excuses – just suggesting that sixth graders might not be little Goebbels…

Good Bye
Today is my last day at Beliefnet (which I co-founded in 1999). The swirling emotions: sadness, relief, love, humility, pride, anxiety. But mostly deep, deep gratitude. How many people get to come up with an idea and have rich people invest money to make it a reality? How many people get to create
