Brain-dead Bureaucrat

A few weeks back I wrote about wearing a LiveStrong wristband.  For me it's logical; I'm a cyclist, Lance Armstrong fan, it supports cancer victims who need assistance and my mother is a cancer survivor.  It just makes sense to me.  Unfortunately, an administrator run amok at the Virginia Beach City Public Schools just disqualified 26 cross-country runners for wearing them.  Why?  They're jewelery of course, and only religious or medical "jewelery" are allowed.

It's good to see a positive message for kids of all ages being squashed by an overzealous school bureaucrat.  Fortunately for me I would have been allowed to wear mine because cycling is my religion!

Well it seems that the bureaucrats who made this blunder have reversed this decision after getting inundated with complaints from rational, sane people.
