What's this all about?
Fairfax school bans all touchingFairfax Countians are expected to reach out to illegal immigrants with open arms. And they have a big group hug for sexual deviants who find safe harbor there. And we're routinely subjected to all that peace-and-love have-you-hugged-a-terrorist-today? crap that gets flung willy-nilly hither and yon.

Vienna -- A rule against physical contact at a Fairfax County middle school is so strict that students can be sent to the principal's office for hugging, holding hands or high-fiving.
Some Washington-area schools ban fighting or inappropriate touching, but Kilmer Middle School in Vienna bans all touching.
Hugging was Hal Beaulieu's crime when he sat next to his girlfriend at lunch a few months ago and put his arm around her shoulder.
He was given a warning but told that repeat missteps could lead to detention.
"I think hugging is a good thing," said Hal, a seventh-grader. (link)
But let some poor snot-nosed sixteen-year old nitwit grab hold of his girlfriend's hand after their Heather Has Two Mommies class and there's hell to pay.
Makes perfect sense to me.
