In-School Cellphones: This Is NOT Hard

I'm at a loss to describe the pantywaist MPS Administration's response to the "cellphone problem" in Milwaukee high schools (and maybe middle schools...)

Last night their spokeswoman was yapping about buying CIA/Mil-Intel-grade electronic blocking systems to shut down cellphones in schools.

Who the Hell is she trying to kid?

Here's the program. Guaran-friggin-teed to work:

1) Letter home and news release: MPS will not allow students to have cellphones in schools AND will not allow students to have them ON SCHOOL PROPERTY, period. No exceptions.

2) When the darlings arrive for classes, pat them down. If they have a cellphone, it goes to a locked closet. It will NOT be returned to the student, period. Only a parent may retrieve it.

3) Repeat above--second offense, the phone cannot be picked up for at least a week. Third offense, at least a month. Fourth offense, it doesn't get returned until the school year ends.

No problem!

Your ideas have too much common sense and are too non-PC for the Milwaukee School Board to understand.

C'mon Dad, they'd be sued three ways from Sunday. I agree, with you 100%, but, I'm sorry. Most people are stupid, and their illiterate progeny can do no wrong. Sad and declining times we live in.

Kids are suppose to be in school to learn! Not chat on a bloomin' phone! I wonder how people of my generation survived without those annoying little contraptions. Oh yeah, we had to use the OFFICE phone, or ....gasp...a pay phone!
