No More Cartwheels

Diane "DD" Barker, age 65, has been ordered to stop doing cartwheels and splits when she addresses Maricopa County officials at city council meetings. Barker says that it's just her form of personal expression and is a way to show the benefits of exercise. But the city council says it's within its rights to "impose reasonable time, place and manner restrictions on speakers."

"DD" is Dumb-dumb or Double-Dumb or just off her rocker?

I'll bet they are appalled at the thought of someone old enough to be their grandmother in better physical shape then they are.

She is pretty old not to have any understanding of appropriate behavior.

good for her.

an open session at a city council is usually a snooze fest where the mayor gives out a ribbon to some civic organization.

and yes, everyone who is 65, wishes they could do cartwheels and splits.

In Toronto, they recently stopped a 65-year-old woman who was a crossing guard from dancing while directing traffic.

Don't get me started on crossing guards in this day and age. Way back when I went to grade school 7th & 8th graders were the crossing guards. Today you need a PhD better to qualify for this mind numbingly difficult job position.
