A couple aspects of Wednesday's hugging story that I really liked: The protest was peaceful, and the students and administrators were able to work out an agreement on a new rule. I don't remember if my high school had a rule about stuff like this; I don't think it was spelled out, but of course teachers could split up anything they thought was inappropriate.
What I think is kind-of amusing about what happened in Arizona: How are they gonna enforce it? It's funny to think of teachers standing in the halls with stopwatches, telling two-second violators to split up or sit up in detention. On the other hand, who wants to do all that hugging anyway, especially after P.E.? "I just ran two miles and I smell like socks. Let's hug."
