"In America, it used to be that a kid caught with something he wasn’t supposed to have at school had it confiscated by his teacher to be returned to him at the end of the day with a stern warning not to bring it again. Kids used to bring their dad’s WWII swords and pistol souvenirs to class for show and tell while no one so much as batted an eye. But times have changed drastically from only a decade ago when the 'War on Terror' and “zero tolerance” found their way into the American lexicon." (01/03/11)
