    Talking Math Teacher arrested

    This sad part is that this could actually happen.

    Math Teacher arrested as he attempted to board flight at JFK



    New York, N.Y., May 18, 2006

    AP - A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator.

    At a morning press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who was arrested and charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

    "Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzalez said. "They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to every triangle'."

    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes." White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the president.

    When I read the title of the thread I thought it might be about someone I know!

    Speaking of math teachers...I wonder where Euclidean has been.

    The last time Euc was on the forum was May 1. It's unusual for him to be away that long. Like you guys I have been wondering where he was.
