    This may be the strangest story I’ve seen in a very long time:

    EASTON | Dante Mack will be able to attend kindergarten in the Easton Area School District — in 2008.

    Northampton County Judge Anthony Beltrami on Tuesday denied an injunction request by Dante’s parents that would force the school district to accept Dante into a kindergarten class for the coming school year.

    Beltrami ruled that the district did not abuse its discretion when it determined that Dante was too young to enter kindergarten. Dante turns 5 on Aug. 28, and the district’s cutoff day for kids entering kindergarten is Aug. 26 — one day before school starts.

    During testimony Tuesday, Dante’s mother Tina Mack said she had a planned Caesarian section several days before Dante was actually ready to be born because she wanted him to meet the district’s old cutoff date of Sept. 1.

    The REALLY stupid part is that she’s swimming in the wrong direction!

    This hurts me just reading it. Sounds like my bro and s-i-l who were so happy their kid came in Dec instead of Jan when he was due so they had a dependent on their taxes. My poor s-i-l was in the hospital for a week because of her BP and they had to take the baby early. But, oh how wonderful! They got a bigger tax refund! My s-i-l almost popped like a balloon but I guess a few extra bucks was worth it to them.
