    It’s not the school policies themselves, but the whole concept of “Zero Tolerance” that inevitably leads to nonsense like this. Zero Tolerance means zero thought/intelligence, plain and simple.

    A little late, but:
    Drones never leave the nest until it is time to mate, then those that don’t get eaten starve to death, since they can’t survive on their own. The bees that actually fly around finding food and bringing it back to the hive are sterile females – worker bees.

    Did anyone else read this strip and realize that there actually were a whole lot of shows about squid in September?

    Actually, Sue first called him a thing, around forty years before the movie. In his bitterness over his disfigurement, he turned it into a codename.

    Actually, he should count himself lucky Tyr took it wrong, if it had worked Scrappy Lad might have wound up surgically transformed to Scrappy Lass without anesthetic!

    Actually, isn’t that exactly what noicantspell was saying? It certainly sounds to me like you are both saying the same thing, but with different value judgements about what you are saying…

    Actually, he gave it up to Mimir for a sip from the Well of Knowledge, as I recall. He was trying to learn what would lead to Ragnarok so he could manipulate the timing to his advantage.

    Time flies like the wind!

    Fruit flies like the banana…

    I sympathize with Boody. Like him, I too am an invertebrate punster, i.e. spinelessly unable to resist a pun…

    On the other hand, so-called “Zero Tolerance” policies always mean zero tolerance for thought – zero tolerance for judgement. Always. Zero Tolerance inevitably means the victims of bullies get suspended or expelled for fighting, it inevitably means six year olds that draw pictures of guns get arrested, it means that no thought can be given to the actual situation – Wyntre mentioned murder, but we actually do not have a zero tolerance policy toward murder. Our laws consider the circumstances (premeditated or in the heat of the moment; unprovoked or self-defense). By definition, a zero tolerance policy toward murder would outlaw such distinctions and all deaths would be punished with the maximum penalty without recourse.

    Nothing good has ever come from a Zero Tolerance policy, and nothing good ever will. I’d like to think that’s the point of this arc.

    That said, I hate the phrase that this arc has been about, and would agree with a punishment that fit the crime – detention, education – especially education in why the phrase is offensive.
