Heard on the morning news that some enterprising snake oil salesman is selling $200 bullet proof backpacks for school children. One parent in the story was buying two, one for school, and one to wear to the movies. How effective would a bullet proof backpack be? Is this manufacturer taking advantage of the situation? What message is being sent to small kids.? Will these kids need professional help to get over the fear of going outside because people might shoot me? Good grief! May be we deserve to have the world end this Friday. Things are getting nuts.
