High School High

St. Louis Park High School outside Minneapolis, my alma mater, was closed for the day Monday, and while initial reports blamed the school closing on a water main break, it later emerged that this was a cover story, and in fact the closure was due to a threat involving a weapon.

I loved the quote in the above-linked story, where a kid says he's glad the school day was called off, because of "rumors there was going to be a Mexican gang coming with guns." Mexican gangs, as we all know, are EVERYWHERE in suburban Minneapolis.

I eagerly await the coverage of this important story from the Echo.

Even after the superintendent tried to explain the decision about the water main break cover story on the local news I still don't understand why they did that...doesn't make any sense to me.

At least they were closed for Yom Kippur!
