False Advertising

I used to live in New York. At the school I went to, they had a stern rule. NO CELL PHONES OR ELECTRONICS. They spent the whole year enforcing this. One glimpse or ring and it's confiscated. It was in the announcements practically every morning.

Obviously, this story has to lead somewhere. I would not have a whole story saying that a school wanted no electronics. So as I said, this was a really big deal in the school.

It was close to the end of the year. So when I got the new yearbook, I was very surprised. Because right there smack on the front was a picture of a backpack. And you know what was in that backpack? That's right. An iPod and a cell phone. After a year of trying to take them away, it's on the cover of our memories of that year.

Hey, that IS what the year was all about, right?

  4. You need to understand, Noah, that cover was picked 6 months in advance of the announcement. There was no way to change it. In addition, almost every kid carries a cell phone in his/her backpack. I wished you had come to me about this last year and I could have explained it.

  5. I know, it was just a kind of funny story
