School Districts Cancel Classes Due To Mayan Doomsday

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Thousands of students will have an extra-long holiday break after school administrators in at least two Michigan counties decided to cancel classes because of talk surrounding the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut and rumors connected to the Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world.


Five districts in Lapeer County and 20 districts in Genesee County posted announcements Wednesday evening cancelling classes Thursday and Friday."

In my neck of the woods in Central Virginia, sometimes school districts cancel classes if there`s a threat of a snow dusting.

It makes perfect sense for a school district to cancel two days of school in light of threats of violence in the aftermath of the school shooting in Connecticut. Not to mention that the Apocalypse might take place on Friday, certainly the End of the World is a good reason to cancel school.

Every school and business in America should close for the next couple of days; we need a respite from the madness of life. For those of you who never call in sick, grow a pair, and chill out on Thursday and Friday.

If no acts of violence take place Dec. 20 and Dec. 21, and a comet doesn`t destroy the Earth, after a much needed vacation, we will be refreshed and reinvigorated for the rest of our lives.

Why usher in the Abyss slaving away at work, be a man, call in sick, and spend some time, perhaps the last hours of your life, with your loved ones.

A real man doesn`t need a school administrator or his boss at work to cancel school and work. For the Mayan`s God sake, stay home dude.
