I give up. Our culture, our country,our world is just too stupid to be allowed to survive.
A Maryland middle-school teacher published two books under a nom-de-plume about a school shooting set 900 years in the future.
So what did they do?
They raided his home and carted him off to the booby-hatch for evaluation.
A 23-year-old teacher at a Cambridge, Md. middle school has been placed on leave and—in the words of a local news report—"taken in for an emergency medical evaluation" for publishing, under a pseudonym, a novel about a school shooting. The novelist, Patrick McLaw, an eighth-grade language-arts teacher at the Mace's Lane Middle School, was placed on leave by the Dorchester County Board of Education, and is being investigated by the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, according to news reports from Maryland's Eastern Shore. The novel, by the way, is set 900 years in the future.
Guess what? The entire above scenario applies to famous author Stephen King. He published a book about a school shooting under a nom-de-plume.(Rage - Richard Bachman) And it wasn't even set 900 years in the future!!
Stephen, you are clearly a threat. Better check you backyard for SWAT.
