Parent who complained of school trip to Hooters sees backlash
I don't know what is worse: the fact that people shun the mother who had an arguably good point, or the idea that a school superintendent thought sending kids to Hooters was arguably a questionable idea.

A Belleville, Illinois mother who complained when a school official took a group of junior-high students to a Hooters restaurant has been taking some heat.

Joni Quaas says other parents at her daughter's school have been shunning her since the incident. And she says she kept her daughter home last week to avoid being teased.

Quaas complained to her local school board when the superintendent took 26 seventh- and eighth-graders to the restaurant while in Springfield last month.

So now we can add this incident to the roster of inconsistencies: are people under 21 minors or adults? We heard the cry of people saying the 19 year old soldiers fighting for Iraq's freedom were 'children', but here we have a school superintendent who thinks junior high-school kids should be taken to a restaruant that serves alcholol without their parents present.

The superintendent says Hooters was the only place within walking distance that could handle the big group. And many parents support his decision.

More is the pity!
