Letter: Beware the whiteboard!

Whiteboards as school protection. I can’t let this one get by without comment.

You’ve all heard the saying, “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight!” So, we are to bring an 18-by-20-inch board. And don’t forget the kicking demo we saw on TV.

As we all know, these mass killers are kicking people to death. So do kids wear these like backpacks all day or dig them out of closets while being shot and stabbed, or how does that work?

The police chief and school superintendent are smiling while holding their whiteboards. I’m 68 years old and thought I’d seen and heard it all (not!). The absolute ignorance of this is astounding.
