    Electricity should be removed from the school.

    Electricity should be removed from the school.
    Clearly, electricity fits the "inflicting bodily injury" test.

    I suggest that Electricity should be removed from all schools for it is clearly very harmful to children.

    Zero Tolerance.

    Definition of stupid is

    Definition of stupid is to keep repeating your past behavior in hopes of a different outcome.

    Learning, evolution, whatever you call it, the idea is pain avoidance. Driving in the rear-view mirror.

    Physics of energy density is missing from...

    Physics of energy density is missing from any discussion.

    The density of energy and power in Coal/oil/NatGas/nuclear is magnitudes greater than wind/solar. Waterfall and geothermal comes close. More power comes into you home thru copper/aluminum wires from the electric company than falls on you house from the sun.

    No amount of wind is going to make a passenger jet fly 600mph. No amount of solar can power cargo ship across the Pacific.

    Most of the "eco-friendly" suggestions look like toy batteries when you do the Energy/Power density comparison.

    Physics is a fact of life that you cannot legislate away.

    Remember, Al Gore's home state of Tennessee tried to legislate the value of PI=3.0, look how well that worked.

    Even an animal knows that freedom is

    Even an animal knows that freedom is better than captivity.

    If you want security, get arrested, go to prison. They will cloth you, feed you and give you medical care. You will be relatively safe from the everyday worries.

    Safety or Freedom.
    I choose freedom.

    Missing the point...

    Do you want $1 for 10,000 print readers
    Do you want $0.01 for 1,000,000 online readers.

    The issue is do you want to be a
    Big Fish, little pond ($1 for 10,000) -or-
    Little Fish, big pond ($0.01 for 1,000,000).

    You want to grow, so you want to be a little fish in a big pond. You want to grow into a bigger fish. More readers, greater "circulation", better chance at not just surviving but thriving.

    You can either ride the wave of the future or be rolled under by it but you cannot stop it.

    Airports work under a different economic model

    Airports have captive audience.
    Are you suggesting the price of food in airports is competitive?

    When you are the only vendor or severely limit selection to only those approved, then you can charge what you want. Airports, Movie Theaters, University Bookstores, Sports stadiums all feel they have a captive audience and can charge more.

    Hotels that signed long-term contracts for Wireless access are now locked into charging guest $10/day and scaring away business.

    I still think WiFi is valuable and worth paying for in some instances. But businesses like Bookstore(B&N), Coffee shop(SBUX) and restaurants (MCD) use WiFi to increase their business, increase their traffic, drive customers to their door and then make money doing what they do best.
