If you're interested in what life's like at James Madison High School, you need go no further than YouTube: Today, whilst doing our usual browsing for items of local interest, we stumbled across the work of one "bryanrotge," who clearly digs bringing a video camera to school in order to shoot such things as a dance-off, a more formal dance-team performance and, oh, one student chucking a textbook at a classmate.
The latter item is accompanied by this note: "we still dont have a spanish teacher because we constantly run them out with our wild behavior." And then there's the footage below, in which a teacher throws a student out of class -- and we do mean throws. --Robert Wilonsky
