Public schools in Nashville have stopped posting honor rolls because to do so might make underachievers feel bad, reports the Associated Press.

After a couple of parents complained that their children might be ridiculed for not making the list, lawyers for the school district said releasing the honor rolls might violate privacy laws.

In an apparent snowball effect, some schools have since put a stop to academic pep rallies and decided not to hang exemplary work in the hallways for fear of embarrassing even more underachievers. There�s even talk to canceling spelling bees.

Pretty soon we won't even be able to call them underachievers. Ridiculous.

In other news, the net is working again... for now. I'm trying to download an upgrade on my virus software, but so far I can't connect to the download site. I don't think it's me, so it could be that everyone in the world right now is doing the exact same thing. Man, these antivirus companies must just looooove when stuff like this breaks out.
