You can't make this stuff up.
A Massachusetts school has banned any expression of Valentine's Day because it doesn't want to offend other cultures.
Read what the pusillanimous principal at Salemwood Elementary School in Malden. Mass. had to say by way of explanation.
“We have many different nationalities, cultures and languages spoken,” Principal Carol Keenan told Fox News. “Because of that we don’t honor specific holidays.”
I guess that means no Christmas, no Easter, no 4th of July, no nothing.
And just who would object to Valentine's Day (unless you are complaining about the crass commercialization of it)? The US is not the only country that celebrates it.
Apparently, that merry country of Pakistan doesn't like it.
Maybe Ms Keenan should lower the American flag at Salemwood and replace it with the Pakistani flag-so as not to offend anyone.
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the autonomous and lawless provinces of Pakistan....."
