Total bullshit

I just noticed this article on CNN and my first thought was, "Good lord, what total bullshit!" Read it and see.

Banning red ink because it's "stressful". If that's not symptomatic of what's wrong with America these days, I don't know what is. As a former teacher, I strongly condone the use of red ink in grading papers. It stands out, it's easy to read, and it conveys the idea that the teacher is paying attention. Sure, seeing a big fat "F" in red might be stressful to some shithead suburban student, but I doubt it's the color of the ink stressing the kid out.
