I love stories like this XXXIX

I guess you just can't control the little darlings no matter what you do! A 7th-grader is in trouble for writing an English essay describing his "perfect day". What might that include?
In addition to the president and Winfrey, the boy wrote that violence should be directed at executives of Coca-Cola and Wal-Mart, police and school officials said.

"His perfect day would be to see the destruction of these people," Schools Superintendent David Raiche said.

Since the essay did not include "any detailed, minute-by-minute plan," the boy won't be charged with a felony count of threatening the President.

In an Orwellian side-note to this story, the boy "has been temporarily barred from school, but as a mental health rather than disciplinary precaution."
