I know. I need to find something else to complain about than Texas. I’m getting over it too.
Texas, Texas, Texas. That’s all I b*tch about anymore, & there’s plenty more to complain about. But I read 2 tweets almost back to back today about the most ridiculous things… in Texas of course!
So, 2 stories:
The Texas high school teacher who allegedly told a Muslim girl in his ninth grade algebra class that “I bet that you’re grieving” over the death of Osama bin Laden will not be returning to work, a school spokesperson tells TPM.
The teacher was suspended last week after the girl complained about his comments to her, which came the day after bin Laden was killed by American forces in Pakistan. The girl’s name has been kept out of reporting on the case, and a spokesperson for the Clear Creek Independent School District would not immediately release the name of the teacher to TPM.
The incident took place at Clear Brook High School near Houston. Parents and fellow students were outraged by the teacher’s remarks to the girl, which allegedly included him calling bin Laden “your uncle.”
No real confirmation that the teacher had been fired, just at least suspended. So, some ppl realize this is wrong.
Texas Senate passes bill allowing concealed handguns on college campuses – via Dallas News
The proposal, generally opposed by higher education officials across the state, would allow Texans with a concealed handgun license to carry a gun into any buildings on a college campus, including classrooms. It would also allow students with a license to keep a handgun in their dormitories…
I dunno. That just sounds awfully dangerous to me. Guns in dorm rooms. I just remember that dorm rooms were never locked; and undergrads (who were the common dorm-dwellers) liked to get tipsy.
