School Bans Hugging

Want to hug your friends? Kiss that idea good bye at the Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School in New Jersey. The principal there has just banned hugging:

The district says Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School Principal Tyler Blackmore made an announcement that students were in a "no hugging school" following some "incidents of unsuitable, physical interactions."

Looks like I retired from teaching just in time. I was hoping to fix the system from the inside, but it looks like it just WANTS to get worse all the time.

Reading this indignant page,
Know that in a former time,
Love, sweet Love, was thought a crime!"
