    I see from the article that the teacher is actually near retirement. I guess she's throwing caution to the wind since she's almost out of there.

    Sometimes you just need to rant.

    But yes, I do support punching people in the face if they're crazy enough. I think everyone has a threshold where they'd like to if someone crosses it.

    And Hooter's is not a family restaurant.


    you impose a(n arbitrary) litmus test for a family restaurant to be one which has a kid's meal on its menu ... at least until you learn that hooters does have a kid's meal on its menu

    thanks for the laugh

    I suppose it is pretty stupid to expect adults to be intelligent rational people. Every high school kid sees things far more explicit than a hooters every day!! The reason my generation(I am 25) is so ****ed up is because we have a bunch of adults attempting to micromanage our lives. We are never able to test ourselves, make our own decisions. Then kids turn 18 or 22 or 23(depending on circumstances) and they are thrown out into the real world having never had do to anything for themselves, and they are not capable. I was lucky, I had a father who raised me right when I was little, and then when I became a young adult he told me he trusted me and for me to make him proud. I do my best every day. I certainly work harder at it than I would had he stood over my shoulder every second trying to protect me from the evils of the world. You know, like cleavage!!

    It's a parents job to micromanage their children's lives. I might not agree with what they deem appropriate or not, but I am not going to condemn them for taking an interest. For some, Hooters might not to them be appropriate for taking kids to, both for the Hooters "theme" or just because alcohol is served there. That is a parents right, and it is predictable that a parent might object.

    Actually, the arbitrary litmus test was their website. And, I stated that their website does not have a kids menu, b/c they do not encourage kids as patrons. That is not their demo, and not their market.

    I used common sense to determine it's not a family restaurant. Not really that hard. Perhaps all y'all thinking Hooters IS a family restaurant should learn what a family restaurant is, how they market themselves, what they might use to attract that demo, and other things that would show up in a family restaurant business plan.

    Hooters' business model isn't it. :
