I would think truck drivers get flipped off every single day.

Are the truckers driving down as part of their normal route or are they really burning all that expensive gas just to do that?

The latter. They drove out here from god-knows-where. They spend the night in Hagerstown, drive down to the D.C. beltway, circle it a few times and then go back up to Hagerstown. I have absolutely no idea what they're trying to accomplish.

That pretty much sums up any protest against masks and vaccines.

In the evangelical church and schools I attended growing up in the 80s, butt was considered a cuss word on par with ass or dick, fart was also bad, though slightly less so, and that book cover would’ve been considered obscene. It doesn’t surprise me at all that the same holds true for a public school in Bumfuck, Mississippi. Hopefully he gets his public hearing and the non-crazy members of the community show up to have his back enough to reverse the school’s bullshit decision.

I'm surprised the letter writer didn't censor the bad words... I mean even typing them out could send you to, you know, that bad place, right?

the letter writer is the Superintendent, for what it's worth. There's not even a specific mention of any parent complaints, either. Just "you did this. this is bad. you're fired."

Such risibly jejune panglossian treacliness doesn't comport with the stygian saturninity and opprobrium of our social and political climate.
