Kevin Miller looks at a crazy story concerning Dodge ball and the country of Canada. As if we couldn't kick kids (and adults) who hold a special love for the game of dodgeball any harder while they're already down... Canadian researchers have blasted the game as a tool of "oppression."According to professor Joy Butler, at the University of British Columbia: "When you're setting up the environment for students to learn, and you introduce the idea that it's OK to slam the ball at whomever you like, even if it's with a soft ball, the intention is there." Instead, she says teachers should help kids "control their aggression and move on instead of expressing themselves through anger," the Washington Post reports.The researchers claim the game teaches kids to dehumanize and harm one another. Kevin Miller poses the following questions: Who wants to go to Canada with a bunch of dodgeballs? Not the soft kind but the real, you can feel the concussion before it hits your head, dodgeballs? You know the ones they've already outlawed? Do you know anyone else who has a problem with dodgeball? Are we proving her point about aggression? ; 6:35 a.m. - Fox News Radio's Simon Owen reports live from the beaches of Normandy on this 75th anniversary of D-Day ; 7 a.m. - Rep.
