"...After a relentless campaign of bullying, hectoring and nuisance phone calls, the monster parents had cowed the teachers into submission, forcing the school to admit to the injustice of selecting just one girl to play the title role. "

Will someone please explain this to me?  Injustice??

Sounds as though the pendulum has swung waaay too far in its reaction to the former rigidity of Japanese society.

Looks like the parents are starting to be like some parents here in the United States.  Complain about everything and bug the school about it until something is done about it.

Here is my prediction for the future of society... the kids grow up with the delusion that everything will work out for them and they can get everything they want from someone else without doing any work, then, when they go to college, and they fail their first assignment because they couldn't do it in a F!@#$%^ GROUP they will drop out and the unemployment rates will soar due to lack of educated people.  Then there will be no workers left to hold up society and the very structure of humanity's way of living will crumble!!!!  We shall be living like those in the 1300's not learning because the strongest will cause us to deal with the mistakes of our forefathers!!!  All because we didn't want to hurt the kid's feelings.  I fart in the parents' general direction!

My prediction would be that all of these kids who believe they are the centre of the universe will one day confront their own mortality and relative insignificance, and turn into a bigger bunch of navel-gazing whiners than the Boomers. They'll probably all end up on medication too.

Funny, only recently, my wife has been putting together a batch of nativity scenes to sell next Christmas. She started by making 16 Marys, and I made a comment about the world's most inclusive Christmas pageant. Then this comes along.  BounceGiggle

Of course, what I really want to see is a Palm Sunday passion play with 28 disciples, three Christs and a kangaroo.

Yeah, it's kind of like suggesting that a hockey game would be more fun if everyone got a puck. What's the point?

To see which team could steal and be able to keep control of the most pucks? The game is not over until every puck is in a goal. The team with the most pucks in their goal at the end loses TeddyR

You know, as whiny as both situations may seem, they do make things fun and surreal-like. Maybe each of the Snow Whites could have a different motivation, each portraying a different aspect of the character Lookingup. Hmm, might make a nice "Whose Line" game TeddyR

But if one team wins another loses, and the losers would feel bad, therefore we should negate all sports! Lookingup

No, that's where the so-called "co-operative sports" come in. No winners, no losers, no competition of any kind. You simply play for the fun of working together.

I can remember that being all the rage with some of my teachers around 1980ish. They were products of the universities of the 60s and 70s, and liked to show us movies like Free to Be You and Me. Really prepared us to go out into the world. One particular old hippy, who learned the benefits of healthy competition later on when he started running marathons, used to come up with non-violent, non-competitive, totally co-operative cheers for the teams he coached. Don't beat anybody, just have fun.

And it is from that unique period in education history we get the parents of today.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
