I was having a conversation last night in a bar about why so many people seem enamored of their high school reunions. My take on it is that that was the one time in so many people's lives where they felt they'd actually accomplished something. The time and place where they believed they had reached some sort of pinnacle.
For the record, high school sucked, and the only way I'll ever go back is if I've got a gallon of gasoline and a roadflare. If that's the pinnacle of my life I should just shoot myself now.
Now, if I'd had a riot at my high school, that'd be a different story.
500 students. And it all started with a fight between two of them.
Fontana police Sergeant Doug Wagner says authorities don't know if the fight was gang related or racially motivated.Back in my day it was neither. But then, we didn't have riots 500 students strong. More's the pity.
