Eric Berlin points us this account of an Iowa schoolboy being expelled from eighth grade for compiling a list of people he found "annoying." As The Hawk Eye tells it:
An eighth-grader at West Central Junior High has been removed from school and may face a charge of disorderly conduct after school officials learned last week about a list that named students and school staff the boy considered irritating….
In a telephone interview Tuesday, [Superintendent Ralph] Grimm said the teen was taken out of school after being confronted Nov. 24 by Principal Jeff Nichols, who learned about the list late the previous day. A disciplinary hearing before the School Board has been set for Thursday….
Henderson County Sheriff Mark Lumbeck was to meet with school officials Tuesday as part of his office's investigation of the incident….Because no action was taken beyond compiling a list of names, Lumbeck said the only crime the boy could be charged with is disorderly conduct for disrupting the school environment.
Whole bit here. I can think of at least three people who have bumped up slots on the kid's list.
Paging Principal Stalin!
