Finally! A Solution that Works!

From the Yale Daily News, via Instapundit:
In the wake of Monday’s massacre at Virginia Tech in which a student killed 32 people, Dean of Student Affairs Betty Trachtenberg has limited the use of stage weapons in theatrical productions.

Students involved in this weekend’s production of “Red Noses” said they first learned of the new rules on Thursday morning, the same day the show was slated to open. They were subsequently forced to alter many of the scenes by swapping more realistic-looking stage swords for wooden ones, a change that many students said was neither a necessary nor a useful response to the tragedy at Virginia Tech.
When stage swords are outlawed, only outlaws...never mind...

You can truly see the value, though, of an Ivy league education...diversity of stupidity!

David Hardy came up with a quote that lefties seem to hate when I use it.

"A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity."
--Sigmund Freud

It is this sort of warped logic to self defense that make my head want to explode.

That liberals fear an object that can not do anything unless it is used by a human. This is such an obvious observation, that even a blind man can see the truth in it.

Or is it that just want us to feel all warm and safe inside because the evil weapons are out of sight.
