Suspended for making a finger gun

This is what he did.
A six-year-old boy in Maryland was suspended from school because he made this gesture to another kid.

Somehow this rings of insane to me. Suspended?

Yet in the bigger picture, I guess it's mostly sad to me. It's sad to think that something this simple done by a little boy at school could lead to such a serious reaction. Sad to me that maybe, just maybe we've gotten to the point in our society where things like this once innocent gesture now need to be taken seriously.

We'll discuss on the Thursday PhilCast.

Plus, the latest TV technology. It promises to be the best picture yet coming from the thinnest screen yet. But will you be willing to pay over $10,000 to get it?
Yikes.

And 4:30-ish Lips LaBelle drops by to talk Hollywood news and gossip.
I've got one tidbit about Ann Curry today myself.
