No matter what kind of day you’re having, you should never threaten to shoot up your work place… especially if you work at a school.
Such was the case with Wendy Ferris, who worked in the cafeteria at King Philip Middle School in Norfolk. The other day, Ferris had baked a batch of cookies, and allegedly, another worker in the cafeteria baked a new batch because hers were overcooked. That set her off, and according to Assistant DA Christopher Meade, she then said to an employee in the office: “I’m thinking about going out and buying an AK-47 and shooting this school up.” This statement landed her in hot water, and she was subsequently arrested and charged with uttering threats to commit a crime. Have you ever just gone off about something because you were pissed off, and wound up getting in trouble because someone took you seriously? Even if she wasn’t serious, I think we have learned that in today’s climate of school violence, you can’t joke around about that stuff. What are your thoughts on that? Are we taking things too seriously or is this woman an idiot for saying this? Comment below, and read more on the story here.

One teen in Virginia would like Disney to introduce a plus-sized princess. In her change.org petition, Jewel Moore states that, “I made this petition because I'm a plus-size young woman, and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positive plus-size character in the media.” She has many supporters, but there are critics who say that this move would not be promoting ideal body image to children. What is your opinion on this?
On that note, we somehow got into a discussion about plus-sized super heroes in the middle of our last segment when we were joined by Mike Hsu. You can grab that here if you missed it.
