Why stop with Uggs? Why not bras, too?


Gotta scratch my head over the new ban on boots declared by Pottstown Middle School. Administrators have forbidden the wearing, in school, of loose-topped boots (like Uggs) because kids are storing their cell phones inside them (kids aren't allowed to use their cell phones during the school day).

Every school has a problem with this, so Pottstown's frustrations aren't uncommon. But why, pray tell, the ban on loose-topped boots? Cell phones can be smuggled in pockets, snug underwear and bras (which can carry a significant health risk, but that's a separate issue). Will those items be banned, too?

This is just silly.
