Augusta County has become the county of the idiots. This county also had the big todo about the calligraphy with the moslem/Islam statement last year at the high school. The chapstick article is 3 years old but it is the same idea, it is getting ridiculous for what they allow / don't allow and yet there is more bullying and problems than we ever had when I was a kid growing up at the tail end of the "woodstock era". Everyone is so afraid there might be a tainted chapstick with some sort of halleucinigen (sp) mixed in it. One reason there are more and more parents in this area going the home schooling route with younger kids at least.
Greybeard, we aren't that close to DC; about 4 hours. But there are some people with some pretty weird thoughts here now.
