Semi in the saddle

I am back at work but not feeling well at all. The cough kept me awake most of the night, so energy renewal is difficult. I had a questionnaire that needed to be handled in home room, so staying away was not in the cards. The easy element is that I had four quizes scheduled yesterday, so all my classes today will just be taking their quizes. There is still a lot of interaction and teen management, though.

Okay, here is a reality question regarding the quail shoot. Isn't it required by law that when you shoot someone accidentally the police are informed immediately? Can you really shoot somebody and then talk to the police late in the next day, at your leisure? (I read that the police were turned away from the house THE NEXT MORNING, when they came to interview the Veep.) Does the law give you a couple of days before deciding to report a car accident after you have left the scene and headed home? No, that is called hit and run. Isn't there a similar law involved when you shoot someone? Why isn't anyone in the media talking about that? This morning's paper said it was a "private" accident. Private? They act as though the late reporting of the accident to the newspaper is the issue here, not the legal requirement to get in contact with the police. This whole story has some extremely odd elements to it.
