    I absolutely support The Hitting Stops Here’s efforts to end paddling in the local schools. But this bit makes no sense:

    Flowe and four other speakers — including two children — addressed the board about the issue during the public comment session of the meeting. The group called on the board to form a committee to look at alternative ways to discipline children and end paddling in schools.

    Flowe told the board the group is planning a boycott in order to be heard.

    “We have enough parents that are behind us,” she said. “We don’t want to have a boycott but we will.”

    What are they going to boycott? Sending their kids to school? Does anyone have a clue/guess what this is supposed to mean?

    I’d guess they mean not sending their own kids and maybe a picket line to encourage others not to send theirs either?

    Regardless, you gotta love this line:
    “The only people who are paid to paddle someone’s behind are porn stars, prostitutes and teachers.”
