Mea culpas from Mercer Island School District: The game of tag is ‘reinstated’

Rivero's Rangers! You did it. We internet warriors I once likened to rain drops,dissolving the NWO a drop at a time. We are now like glaciers,tearing the new world order edifice down rapidly. A Plinian eruption from the people of Earth will soon blow them away!

The Mercer Island School District, sheepish at the controversy it set off, has again allowed the age-old kids’ game of tag on its school grounds.

Tag was banned on the island earlier this week, with district communications director Mary Grady telling Q13 news that “… students are expected to keep their hands to themselves. The rationale behind this is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all students.”

The school district, usually in the news for athletic achievements, found itself lampooned across the country. “Yes — tag. As in, the game that involves running and being tapped, which is far less than what I endure any time I take public transportation,” wrote Katherine Timpf in National Review Online.

The district retreated, likely for its political safety, on Friday afternoon.
