    when they discovered that the President was fooled by it for a few minutes. That was kinda stupid too.  It wasn't funny.  It was shoddy journalism.

      There are a few students in each class, usually boys, who tend to laugh at things like someone getting a wrong answer, or someone behaving badly, or someone getting in trouble for behaving badly.

      I try to impart a more mature perspective to them during the time they are with me. I have hopes that by the time they graduate from high school, most of them will have outgrown this unfortunate juvenile habit.  

      Sad to see that it persists throughout adulthood in some people.
