Want proof that the US has become overly litigious (as if you needed more)? An elementary school south of Boston recently banned kids from playing tag, touch football and any other unsupervised â€œchase gameâ€ during recess, citing the fear theyâ€™ll get hurt and hold the school liable. I can only imagine some parentsâ€™ reaction to this: â€œGosh, Iâ€™m so glad Billy isnâ€™t playing with other children on the school yard anymore, he scraped his knee that one time and has never been the same since. Itâ€™s a good thing we can keep him inside playing video games all day in a safe environment where heâ€™s surely not going to get hurt, or interact with other children in any sort of exercising fashionâ€. Banning tag? Really? Is that whatâ€™s necessary to keep people from suing the schools these days? I shed a tear for any child who will be forced to play jacks and tiddlywinks thanks to this new rule. Some people just need to lighten up.
