HugsWhat the world needs now is love, sweet love, but not, it seems in Illinois, where a middle school principal has banned embraces. Yup, Oak Park, IL is now a no-hugging zone. According to an Associated Press story this afternoon, the principal claimed students were hugging so much, they were tardy to class. Save it, she said, for airport farewells and family reunions. OK, that’s just sad. Seems to us a little affection is far preferable to the fistfights and weapons action we hear so much about. Your thoughts?
