At Percy Julian Middle School in Oak Park Illinois, Principal Victoria Sharts has banned hugging, not just for at times being unwanted or inappropriate but because it can make you [b:032fb][i:032fb]llate [/i:032fb][/b:032fb]for class.

"The goal is always to promote safe and orderly hallways where everybody can get by, be safe, and be on time."

So remember if your running to class, squeezing through crowded hallways. No hugging your books as you run, at least not in Oak Park. <img src=" title="Wink" />

That is so sad. I think that wouldn't go over where I live people were always hugging at my junior high. That's as bad as the banning of the game Tag.

[size=90:c2e15]It was banned at our middle school because there were kids making out when they were not supposed to.

That didn't mean a thing; people still hugged each other. A good friend of mine and I are HUGE hug people, so that did not jive with us.[/size:c2e15]

For me, such innovations look very strange. After all, before voicing the new rules, it seems to me that almost no one thought that hugs could harm anyone in this way at school. And I do not believe that this is blindness to reality, which they write about at analysing a literary work. I’m even glad that I read King Lear since the comparison of Gloucester and King Lear helped me to look at the situation from different perspectives. But still, I think that this is not a necessary school rule.
