    Default Schools suspended here over worries of end of the world violence.

    Listening to the radio on the way to work this morning several if not more districts have suspended classes to alleviate any "potetntial situations" of the mayan calander predictions. Unreal.

    Mayan end-of-world rumors prompt Michigan officials to close 33 schools - U.S. News


    Mayan end-of-world rumors prompt Michigan officials to close 33 schools



    Threats of school violence and Mayan apocalypse rumors result in dozens of Michigan schools closing early for the holidays. WDIV's Paula Tutman reports.
    By Tracy Connor and Maureen Mullen, NBC News
    More than 30 Michigan schools closed for the holidays two days early, in part because the Mayan calendar predicts the world will end on Friday, an official said.


    Matt Wandrie, superintendent for Lapeer Community Schools, said doomsday "rumors" are running rampant in several districts, adding to fears raised by last week's school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
    "Given the recent events in Connecticut, there have been numerous rumors circulating in our district, and in neighboring districts, about potential threats of violence against students," Wandrie wrote on his website.
    "Additionally, rumors connected to the Mayan calendar predicted end of the world on Friday have also surfaced," he added




    He noted that Twitter was lighting up with posts with sentiments like: "Friday would be a great day to go out w/ a bang."
    The ancient predictions of apocalypse were a "secondary concern," with rumblings about violent threats against schoolchildren a bigger issue, he said.

    Wandrie said all rumors of threats had been "investigated and determined to be false" but were still a "serious distraction" for students heading into the holiday break, and parents were vowing to keep children home.
    So officials from five districts in Lapeer County covering 33 schools decided to just scrap the last two days of classes, extracurricular activities and athletic events.
    "Although we in the county are reluctant to cancel school because the rumors are unsubstantiated, we feel it is the most appropriate decision given the gravity of recent events and our present circumstances," he wrote.

    Should be expected, The History channel, Discovery channel..... Have been inundating the airwaves on this and Armageddon for quite some time now. Same as the Y2K scare. Sensationalism in reporting sells.
    By the way, the final Mayan codex on the calender shows the end will come by massive flooding. Whats the weather prediction for 12-21-12?
    Sunny and clear here in SoCal. I'm packing a couple xtra cases of beer on the Party Barge to survive this one.............

    Funny thing..sort of goes along with the BS Shue posts.

    I have been home for a couple weeks, got another week to go before returning to work. Not off specifically for Christmas, just my regular rotation.

    We have been watching The Price is Right most mornings. I noticed that most of the contestants are Californians...no surprise as it is shot in LA.

    What is striking is that about 90% of the CA contestants are ALL either teachers, City or State workers, or CA students.
    Not ONE I have seen has a private sector job.....not one.

    Why?? They are all working while the non-producers are all on "Holiday Break"...with leave and holiday pay no doubt.

    How is it that our children can graduate from high school and remain so STUPID?
