The Republican Journal is reporting on a police investigation into a "kill list" at Searsport District Middle School. This is obviously a serious and scary issue for the kids, parents and teachers involved. It sure makes me nostalgic for the days when I was a kindergarten gang member. We brought wooden clothespins from home and rubbed them against the cement steps till they had a point. We pretended they were knives. (Don't tell the British doctors about that.) We never really used them against anybody, of course, but it felt cool having them.
These days, I don't even know where any of the old posse members are.
