I am sorry, but that is all I can think of when I read garbage like this.

[ATTLEBORO, Mass. - Tag, you're out! Officials at an elementary school south of Boston have banned kids from playing tag, touch football and any other unsupervised chase game during recess for fear they'll get hurt and hold the school liable.
Recess is "a time when accidents can happen," said Willett Elementary School Principal Gaylene Heppe, who approved the ban.
While there is no districtwide ban on contact sports during recess, local rules have been cropping up. Several school administrators around Attleboro, a city of about 45,000 residents, took aim at dodgeball a few years ago, saying it was exclusionary and dangerous.
Elementary schools in Cheyenne, Wyo., and Spokane, Wash., also recently banned tag during recess. A suburban Charleston, S.C., school outlawed all unsupervised contact sports]

LOSERS! When I first saw the headline I thought it might be that they didn't like the idea of teaching kids to chase each other.... Might led to stalking, etc. But this is even worse... Kids can't play because they might get hurt?

Take out the jungle gym, swings, slides and tetherball. Even supervised they can all lead to injury!!!!

This is what happens when you let women Vote.
