My athletic ability in my 7th-grade gym class was average at best, but dodge ball was a very egalitarian game. All you had to do was toss a harmless large air-filled rubber ball at a guy on the other team. If you hit someone, he had to leave the game. If someone hit you, you had to leave. If you were the last guy on your team, then you had something to feel good about. I was the last guy a few times. There were never any injuries. We all had fun. Doing away with dodge ball is ridiculous. I wouldn't blame "the left" for the attack on dodge ball. I blame what I call the politically correct pseudo-left. Struggling to make their lives meaningful, they have taken a flight from common sense.
