    I didn't see this on the internet yet, but there was just a story on CNN about kids in trouble, in New York, who are given the option to do Shakespearian theater instead of time in jail [maybe community service?].

    I didn't know there was a difference. :biggrin:

    I am sure pain is the only deterant these kids know, some times the pain
    of embarassment is more than physical pain, but i would still kick their asses
    first.
