    The principal appears to suffer from paranoia and is a prime example of why my father taught me not to confuse academic achievement with intelligence. :nono2:

    I can picture the bomb-squad guy now, sitting in a full blast-suit, "dis-arming" the caps one at time with a rock on the sidewalk.
    Cable news choppers overhead with reporters on scene, "there was another bang!" what we can only assume are some sort of improvised explosive devices being triggered... wait there's another... its very strange, a series of light tapping "clicks" followed by louder bang, then a brief pause, then it starts over again.. it's a very tense scene here...everyonce in while we can hear a muffled "crap... it's a dud" on the radio, but we just aren't sure what that means... OH there it is again! can you hear that in the studio?"

    Agreed that there should be a punishment, but it shouldn't take two hours of questioning to determine that there was no malicious intent, and certainly the parents should have been called immediately.

    Union Carbide taught me that. Perhaps I should say the people who had degrees and worked for UCC taught me that. Not having a degree didn't hold anyone back from advancement. Gotta give them credit for that.

    Nope. School administrators can interview students without parents present. It is routinely done and parents are normally called after the interview.
