Candidate Wants to use Textbooks to Protect Against Bullets???

I just had to write about this story. A candidate for state superintendent of schools in Oklahoma wants schools to buy THICK used textbooks for students to put under the desks. If there is a potential shooting situation, they could pull out those thick textbooks and use them as sheilds to protect against the bullets.

I could see a whole industry being created for this:

Bob's Used Books - the best shields in town!

Keep your kids safe - buy the strongest, widest, used books in town!

John's second hand books - when you want to make sure your kids make it home!

Our used books are reinforced with kevlar for extra protection!

I guess books aren't just for learning anymore. Uggh!
