Tirade - sensitivity

I know we're all supposed to be a lot more sensitive these days but does anybody think we might have taken things a little too far.  Three items caught my attention the other day.  Firstly a boy was suspended from school - I think he was about seven - for eating his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.  The Maryland legislature has deemed it sufficiently important to introduce a bill to stop any such suspension in the future.  But my thought is what the heck was the teacher thinking?  Secondly, a child was reprimanded, and for all I know suspended, for decorating his cupcakes with toy soldiers.  Good Grief! Finally we have recently awarded a bronze star - about the fifth highest decoration in the military, I believe - for a power point presentation on how to treat Muslims and the Koran!  A Bronze Star?  Come on People!
