A sharply divided Supreme Court on Monday said police can continue to take DNA from people they arrest without getting a warrant. The court’s five-justice majority said DNA testing was a legitimate police arrest procedure, like fingerprinting. “Taking and analyzing a cheek swab of the arrestee DNA is, like fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court’s five-justice majority.
Don't worry, it takes practice. In the meantime, have a laugh.

Remember we have a "Library" in the classroom. I tried to pick interesting things, but I don't know everyone's tastes. I have deeper harder books, and I have more light-hearted ones. Just let me know what type you are looking for if nothing looks good.
I hope everyone enjoyed "The Bearded Bird." I can't think of a better way to end our unit on Evolution and our trimester together.
If you have NOT completed your portfolios remember that you will be with me every day after school until I get them.
I'm looking forward to our last days together as we prepare ourselves for the awesome might of the CHICKENSAURUS! Watch the video here.
If you miss him, see pictures of J.P. here. I may bring him back sometime in the third trimester; so stop in and say "Hi!" once in a while.
Remember I will be out on Monday. Mr. Rierson will be with you so have fun with him and enjoy the Bunny evolution simulation! You can find it HERE.
For those of you that missed him on Friday, JP the Bird will be back this week. He will be helping us in our Evolution unit as we look at Homologous vs. Analogous structures.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,
We will resume our regularly scheduled classroom tomorrow, Mon. Feb. 18th.
We will continue with Meiosis and I will have a surprise for you on Friday.
We have some news that affects classes this week.
I was able to tell 3rd hour, but I missed telling 4th hour, my apologies.
I will be spending the week at East Lee learning how that school is run.
This week Ms. Wilber will be your teacher!
I will see you all next week.
P.S. Feel free to contact me with questions.

“If this book has a lesson, it is that we are awfully lucky to be here-and by 'we' I mean every living thing. To attain any kind of life in this universe of ours appears to be quite an achievement. As humans we are doubly lucky, of course: We enjoy not only the privilege of existence but also the singular ability to appreciate it and even, in a multitude of ways, to make it better. It is a talent we have only barely begun to grasp.”
