    US high school 'held cage fights'

    BBC NEWS | Americas | US high school 'held cage fights'

    Staff at a high school in the US state of Texas had students settle their differences by fighting inside a steel cage, a local newspaper has reported.

    What a fine place Texas is.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    This is all being blown out of proportion. It was part of the technical skill training for the only career these kids will be able to break into with a TX high school degree.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Philly is suffering from the end of industrialization whereas Dallas is full of oil money and we still don't have schools that sponsor steel cage matches
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    That from someone that exists in the city of "brotherly love" known as one the most violent cities in thees har countree. A city where sports fans bring guns to shoot their own players when they make a mistake. Being born in Chicago's south side I moved to Houston and love every inch of it here. I've been in philly clubs and bars and despite the ugliest skanks in America the guys there still roll up their T-shirt sleeves and keep Lucky Strike cigarettes in them. Go shovel your snow.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I wish my school would have been run like that.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Blown out of proportion I expect. When I was in jrHigh thirty years ago, the gym coaches used to do this when they caught two guys posturing for a fight: throw them in the equipment cage and make them fight it out, stopping it when someone had enough. Nobody ever got hurt very much.

    Different times, I know...but it usually ended there back when I was a kid, instead of resulting in someone shot or stabbed like it so often does now.

    No, the money is concentrated in several suburbs around Dallas. The money left when the segregation ended, and Oak Cliff isn't full of much, oil or otherwise.


    Lucky Strikes are the ****. Mmmm....Toasted.
