Students at Weber Middle School in New York are no longer allowed to play with footballs, soccer balls, or any other sporting equipment that might cause injuries. The list of banned activities also includes games of tag and cartwheels.

It comes as no surprise at all. Children are soft these days. They get hurt constantly because they sit on their cans far too much and they aren't as nimble or agile as children used to be. Then their parents sue for outrageous sums of money.

If those kids aren't already fat and diabetic, they soon will be. Reminds me of the movie Wall E.
