"Are they [the children] tired? Yes, but everyone is tired these days." - Tom Devito, principal of Ferryway School in Malden.

Let me get this the logic is 'because everyone is tired, let's just make the kids tired too.' Sounds brilliant. Let's bury the kids early in exhaustion, which will then cause more illnesses, thus increasing doctors' visits, thus driving up the cost of health care, and then we can let Big Brother come in and save us from ourselves. Yes! Let's completely surrunder our individual rights so government can tell us what to do.

In the famous words of General McCauliffe:

To the parents of children at the Ferryway School, and: Good luck!

To the parents of Leominster Public school children: We don't have Big Brother, we have Big Sister.
