I had an extensive posting on this story going until Blogger lost the whole thing, but read Misha's take, and my comment.

We found this incredibly alarming, yet, completely expected, article in the Dead Tree Edition™ of the Tampa Tribune. We’ll post the entire thing, since it’ll be pay-per-view within a few days. (All emphasis ours—B.)

Saudi Men Who Rode School Bus Arrested


Published: May 20, 2006

TAMPA - Two Saudi men were arrested Friday after they boarded a school bus and rode to Wharton High School in New Tampa.

“Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing to cause alarm. Let’s just move along.”

Students on the bus became alarmed, as did the bus driver, who called ahead. Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies met the bus at the school and detained the men. No one was injured and nothing out of line occurred on the bus, deputies said.


Okay, I'll try this again. A schoolbus driver does NOT allow unknown adults to board the bus. If this happens, the operator parks the vehicle and alerts base in any number of secretive ways. If she let them on and drove away, it was HER fault. Not that I believe these detweilers to be harmless morons, but that bus never should have moved an inch with them onboard.
