Four new nutty examples of political correctness and the school year is just getting started

-- Student punished and thrown out of class for saying "bless you" to a fellow classmate who sneezed.
-- Boy Arrested and suspended for a week for writing a fictional story about shooting a dinosaur in school project.
-- Cookies served for 40-years in Elyria, Ohio banned from public schools by federal government because "It has too many calories."

-- Now something from a college:  University of Mary Washington's student newspaper has been called "The Bullet" since 1922, but political correctness has caused them to change the name to "The Blue & Gray."
“The editorial board felt that the paper’s name, which alludes to ammunition for an artillery weapon, propagated violence and did not honor our school’s history in a sensitive manner,” the release said. “The board intends to remain faithful to the history our university stands upon, and we continue to honor this history both in a respectful and meaningful way.”
Bullet "alludes to ammunition for artillery weapon"?  Seriously?  Well, there is no violence associated with the Civil War, right? For those University of Mary Washington alumni or others who are disappointed with the decision (it won't be official until sometime this coming week), you can let the school president know your feelings by clicking on the link here.
