This is my favorite argument. "Lots of people are doing it, and if we
make one stop we'll have to make them all stop - and gee, that's
just so much work." Yes, there would be a lot more lawsuits if this
one wins - but just until the schools start taking the responsibility
they're legally (not to mention ethically) obligated to.
