In Idaho, Everything is Fine

"In our district there was an isolated instance of children making regrettable and unacceptable remarks in regards to harming President-elect Obama," [Superintendent Geoffrey] Thomas wrote in a letter to parents Monday. "Word of this behavior leaked out to a hyperactive media and bloggers which in turn distorted way out of proportion the comments that were made, painting the entire community with the same negative brush."
Hyperactive bloggers, huh? Can I join in the virtual finger-wagging?

I guess a bunch of 2nd and 3rd graders, in a school bus in Eastern Idaho, were chanting "Assassinate Obama" after the November 4th election.

Read about the small town mayor's public apology.

How did I miss this story?!?
