Hoo Boy.

Like many Americans of a certain age, I attended public elementary, secondary and high schools. During that time, I encountered many teachers. Some of those teachers were inspiring, others baffling, and a very few little short of downright infuriating.

But none of them induced me to build a hoax bomb and bring it to school.

A 11 year old kid in Milton, Wisconsin strapped a fake bomb to himself (complete with a video-game controller to stand in for a detonator) and boarded a bus for school. The alert driver overheard a bit of conversation and cleared the vehicle, then called the cops.

The SWAT team and the bomb squad went into action, and after blowing up the device took the little miscreant into custody. He's currently in a juvenile detention center with felony charges on his teener ass.

Just a sign of the times, I guess.
