The pastry deserved suspension, not boy

March 10, 2013

In regard to the 7-year-old boy suspended from second grade for nibbling a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun ("The smoking pastry," March 7), we must immediately ban pastries from the schools. They cause diabetes and obesity, and that kills 300,000 Americans a year.

Ban the pastry if it would save the life if even one child! Deaths from objects nibbled into gun shapes? Zero.
