Paul Verhoeven, Scholar of Jesus

Random Wikipedia trivia: Paul Verhoeven, the director of Basic Instinct and Starship Troopers, is also a member of the Jesus Seminar, a group of scholars dedicated to crafting a view of the historical Jesus of Nazareth. He just wrote a book about Jesus (I couldn’t find it on Amazon). Though his status as a scholar of Jesus is questioned by many because his PhD is not in biblical studies, but math and science.

No Hugs at School

Percy Julian Middle School is the saddest little middle school in the country, thanks to Principal Victoria Sharts, who banned hugging.

“Hugging is really more appropriate for airports or for family reunions than passing and seeing each other every few minutes in the halls,” Sharts said.

Another reason to institute the no-hugging policy was that some hugs could be too long and too close, she said.
