This Is What Public Schools Have Come To

Michelle Obama's latest "healthy kids" pitch: "Walking School Buses".

That's where a group of kids walk to school together, accompanied by an adult.

Here's a picture promoting the notion:

Well, I guess it's working, because there are no fat kids in this picture. Yeah... THESE are the kids that really need the exercise.

In the pouring rain.

While lugging backpacks.

Hope they don't catch cold, get soaking wet, or end up nailed by a bolt of lightning.

How Can You Honor a Man Who Had No Honor?

"We should ask ourselves if we're doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that's a job for all of us. That's the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

- Barack Obama

The best way to honor Trayvon Martin? Don't assault innocent citizens carrying guns.
