What kind of animals are we raising?

Bullying investigated after athlete injured, DM Register 11/4. “She said that about two weeks ago, teammates ‘kept hitting (Kacey Strough) on the head with a football’. He allegedly was struck multiple times and the high school freshman did complain about bullying to one of his coaches. The teen afterward developed headaches and speech problems, and he gradually was paralyzed on the left side of his body, beginning with a droopy eye and mouth… his condition became serious enough Friday that doctors decided to engage in the risky brain surgery”.  

Last year an Iowa high school freshman wrestler was held down and sodomized by his teammates with a plunger handle. Are they schools or zoos?

  1. “Yes! to this thought I hold with firm persistence;
    The last result of wisdom stamps it true;
    He only earns his freedom and existence
    Who daily conquers them anew.”
    — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    Source: Faust (act V, sc. 6)

    “In the long vista of the years to roll,
    Let me not see my country’s honor fade;
    Oh! let me see our land retain its soul!
    Her pride in Freedom, and not Freedom’s shade.”
    — John Keats
    (1795-1821) English poet

    “We grant no dukedoms to the few,
    We hold like rights and shall;
    Equal on Sunday in the pew,
    On Monday in the mall.
    For what avail the plough or sail,
    Or land, or life, if freedom fail?”
    — Ralph Waldo Emerson
    Source: Boston (st. 5)
