Comparison: 1973 to 2006

I received this in my email at work and shared it with some of the other gals there. A couple that are 15+ years younger and weren't even born in 1973 considered it a humorous email and laughed about it. I suppose it could be seen that way to some, but to those of us who lived in those times and before... well, we know it's not quite so humorous and this is a pretty accurate and sad/alarming rendition of the comparison.

With that said...

1973 - Vice Principal comes over, takes a look at Jack's rifle, goes to his car and gets his to show Jack.

2006 - School goes into lockdown, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for?traumatized students and teachers.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

2006: Pedro's cause is taken up by state democratic party. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English banned from core curriculum.
