Proof we're all too uptight

Apparently, the kids around Washington aren't taking their kindergarten seriously enough.

"Nap time needs to go away," Prince George's County schools chief Andre J. Hornsby said during a recent meeting ... "We need to get rid of all the baby school stuff they used to do."

Seabrook Principal Marvel Smith is more supportive of Hornsby's move to eliminate naps. "They can't be babied," she said. "These are young minds. We have to take advantage of this early stage when they grasp everything."

Reminds me of a piece of dialogue from the film Uncle Buck:

I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you! Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing [Anita's mole] off your face! Good day to you, madam.
