As parents we have to pick our battles and I'll just go ahead and say that this one the powers that be at Rushe Middle School in Land 'O Lakes, FL waged is ridiculous. Substitute teacher Jim Piculas was fired for performing a simple 30-second toothpick magic trick once students finished their work. He was cited with wizardry. Am I the only one with fond memories of playing "Red Light, Green Light!" or "Heads Up, Seven Up!" under a substitute teacher's supervision in grammar school?
