So stupid it almost defies comment

Girl gets detention for hugging two friends. Between that and an earlier story about schools banning such childhood games as tag, I can't help but wish for the good old days. Mind you, I'm not talking about some mythical period when school was paradise. It sucked back in my day too. The day after high school graduation, when it truly sank in that the nightmare was over, was arguably one of the best days of my life (I'll put it in my top ten list, at minimum). Back then, kids could still occasionally be kids during school hours rather than (as a parent in the latter article puts it) having their activities "micromanaged".
