More Overheard in the Caravan

Hay: "Did you read that piece in the Sunday Times last week about women's brains?"

Chairman: "Tiny piece, was it?"

The US state of South Dakota has enacted a law allowing school districts to arm teachers and other school staff. The law's backers say it will prevent mass school shootings like a December massacre in Connecticut that killed 26.

What's going to stop one of these armed teachers going berserk at some stage in the future? I despair of the intelligence of some Americans. Seems the whole country is engaged in an arms race. I wonder when they'll be positioning ICBMs on school property in the name of freedom?

The thing I'd want to free from is the thought that the loon next to me on the bus who is muttering into his beard could be carrying a weapon.
