Insanity in Nebraska
A deaf toddler gives his name in sign language; it begins with two index fingers upraised, then crossing each other. The Grand Island Public Schools Board is asking his parents to change his name because a raised index finger violations its anti-weapons policy, since it looks like a handgun.
The school board says it wants to work out a compromise. I'd suggest: the boy goes to school, and the board gets a psych evaluation.
