`Strapping in schools was "not cruel". What a load of rubbish. At least the people had respect for their teachers and other people in the community, includingthe elderly. If the thugs of today had been dealt some discipline when necessary, they would have more respect for people in general instead of "namby pamby" society that now exists.' Unattributed.
A bit shaky at the start and the end but it is easy to agree with the thrust of this texters message.
