Have I mentioned the elementary school techers' strike? 45,000 kids between six and fourteen are out on the streets while the grownups argue. We're in the sixth week of this standoff and everyone's pretty much tearing their hair out over it. Teachers are indignant, parents are bewildered and kids are just bored. Turns out the teenagers are using more drugssince the strike began. Now they are getting drunk and high on weekdays at noon instead of on weekend nights only. Honestly,according to one newspaper, a very reputable source has been watching the progress of teens in the capital area and has seen a dramatic increase in illicit activity in the eleven to fourteen year old set, which is of course one terrible side effect of adults just not being able to get along.
