Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Funny, the kids here can do that too. At least the high schoolers -- the others are a bit young to be running across busy streets, but many grammar school kids do walk home for lunch (if home is reasonably close and there are low-traffic streets) just as I did many years ago. If they stop at a store for candy on the way back to school, well, they'd best be there by the time school takes up again.

But the school district is not about to let the kids from a school dash across one of the busiest intersections in town so they can buy candy at the convenience store, and rightly so. This does not say that the kids don't sneak out and go there, just as I did those many years ago.
