TAG, YOU’RE OUT
I had this archaic concept that it’s OK for children at school recess to run around playing tag (and even dodge ball) and that, in the total scheme of the universe, it’s not such a bad thing. But “Oh No!” – I learn they might hurt themselves or their self-esteem. Really. Say it’s not so.
There must be a clever response to this kind of stuff but words fail me. Maybe I’ll think of something before someone sponsors legislation to outlaw tag in Alaska schools, and it comes before a committee on which I serve.
