Colorado Springs...What's Wrong with those People?

The town that brought you New Life SuperChurch, Colorado Springs, now has a school that has banned the game of tag.

The touch-and-run game and any other form of chasing was banned this year at Discovery Canyon Campus’ elementary school by administrators who say it fuels schoolyard disputes.

Are we next to mark out a small 10 foot square area where the children can play alone? Maybe fence it in...walls? I think schoolyard disputes are necessary for our children to grow into productive adults. It's the way they are going to learn how to handle disputes. Do we really want our next generation to learn about settling differences when they are big and strong enough to do real damage?
