Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking... if they're thining at all. Case in point:
An Albany High School English teacher is on leave after asking her students to argue why Jews are evil. The idea was for the students to take the point of view of the Nazis trying to convince wishy-washy Gestapo agents to be more loyal to the cause.
The teacher even went to spell it out for them by saying, “You must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!"
Needless to say, parents, the school, and the anti-defamation league were outraged by this, and there’s no telling when – or if – the teacher will be able to come back.
What do you do when you're waiting for a bus and there's a song in your head? Why, you dance like nobody's watching. Only in this woman's case, someone was watching and recording.
