Maybe the speed south of the dam seems excessive because you and the texter in the other lane riding side by side over the dam were doing 20 mph.
The same legislature and governor that seems to have declared war on teachers from the beginning of Governor Haslam's election now want them to become security guards (maybe the governor has more faith in this despicable group than I thought). Let's hope they get additional money for their second job.
Others have commented that a teacher could become psychologically unstable and attack students. My thought is what happens when a teacher doing their real job mistakenly lays their weapon on a desk and a student shoots himself or another classmate? No, a "responsible gun owner wouldn't do this" but an extremely busy human could.
Ken Orr brings to mind one of my favorite move lines from a great movie, Time Bandits: "You are so blissfully free from the ravages of intelligence"
