Picturing politeness at Florida State.
Via PoliticalProf, who wonders, “Is this the society we have created?”
Demonstrably, it is.
The hunt for politeness continues apace.
Knox County Sheriff Allen Gudehus told KTVO the accidental shooting took place on a farm southeast of Novelty.
He said a man from Illinois was shot by a family member who was deer hunting with him.
Was it the antlers or the little white tail . . . .
Politeness, with malice towards none:
A 15-year-old was killed Sunday by an accidental in Mesa County.
The County Sheriff’s Office says they don’t believe there was any malicious intent behind the shooting that killed Brandon Crawford.
If you have a beef with your local rag, express it politely, as this fellow expressed his dissatisfaction with the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Responding officers found Smith screaming from his third-floor window.
“‘I’m not leaving without shooting,’ he kept saying from the window of his apartment,” Chitwood said. “When we tried to negotiate with him, he would scream all types of things.”
Chitwood said Smith fired three shots toward officers in the apartment building’s courtyard.
Over the next three hours, Smith fired off six more rounds at police from his window. When he threatened to shoot down a news helicopter flying over the scene, police moved in and launched tear gas into his window, Chitwood said.
You can’t make this stuff up.
It’s still open season for politeness.
Authorities say 39-year-old Bruce Ellyson was hunting with some friends east of the Clearwater Campground in the Shoshone National Forest on Sunday when the accident occurred.
The Park County Sheriff’s Office says Ellyson and his companions had just finished their hunt and were preparing to leave when a rifle leaning against a vehicle fell over and fired.
Fly the polite skies (emphasis added).
More passengers than ever are showing up at airports with weapons in their carry-on luggage, and Dallas-Fort Worth leads the pack, federal officials say.

We are a society of stupid.

Bringing new meaning to the term, “school board”:
A Delaware School District has now become the first in the region to buy what it calls an unconventional kind of classroom protection.
The bulletproof whiteboard is made by a company named Hardwire and is designed to operate as an everyday classroom dry erase board.
Ruminate on the absurdity.
