Rough First Days Around The Nation [And Here]
You think your first day was rough? I have no doubt. Here's a roundup of first-day news stories from other parts of the country to keep you company:
"A Newton, Mass. principal had to deliver a baby on the first day of school... In Philly,171 teachers didn't even bother showing up for the first day... In Detroit, the man responsible for signing checks to the private companies that transport students was forced to wait more than 30 minutes for a school bus... Two students were shot just after leaving their first day at Mumford High School."

Then again, a teacher was apparently stabbed at Pickard (Sun Times) and a Bowen sophomore was killed after school so maybe we have it worse than everyone else after all.
