School bans hugging

A report from the AP in the Chicago Tribune this afternoon says a middle school in Illinois has banned hugging.

Victoria Sharts, principal at Percy Julian Middle School, sent parents a letter saying that "hug lines" in the hallways were impeding students from getting to class on time. Sharts said that hugging was more appropriate for airports or family reunions, according to the AP.

She also noted that hugging in the halls can at times be unwanted, and the school deals with those incidents.

A wide majority of online readers who have posted on the story think the ban is ludicrous. What do you think?

Ever notice that the school is always banning the good things that matter most? God , Bible, Prayer, anything that is good and now kids hugging, what's next?
