Someone has some splaining' to do

For those of you out there who actually saw the show you will recognize the headline of this post as a version of the Lucille Ball Show and the quote from Ricky when something happened, "Lucy, you have some splaining to do!" ...

Two of my children came home from school today and a travesty of justice has taken place. There should be an investigation, call CNN, get Tim Russert to come ask some tough questions, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Washington Times should be alerted.

My son and daughter are wonderful children. But, something has to give. The story I heard was unbelievable.

They each received a 103 on their spelling tests. Not a 100 plus the 5 bonus points for a total of 105 points they normally receive. This is the first time the score hasn’t been every point, all 105. What form of non-violent punishment should be used? Time to contact the President and the Attorney General Nominee to discuss what constitutes torture.

I have to keep from biting a hole in my lip. The grades on my report cards and papers rarely had scores of 103. I am very proud of them. This better not happen again! Smile!
