School Bans “Bless You” – the Constitution may be Next

You’ve probably heard the story of the public school girl in Tennessee who was suspended for saying “bless you” when a student sneezed.

I wasn’t there . . . I don’t know all the facts . . . but I do know that most outbursts during class do not merit a suspension unless it’s repeated or fundamentally inappropriate and the student has a history of such outbursts.
