Remember Matthew Whalen, the notorious Eagle Scout from Troy who was suspended from school for having a pocketknife in his survival kit in his locked car?

According to the Troy Record, an agreement has been reached between the school and Whalen’s parents about his suspension and his permanent record, but the family isn’t talking.

Maybe they had to promise to stop badmouthing the superintendent to Fox News?

Speaking of the superintendent, who previously said a month off from school for this nefarious crime was “appropriate and fair,” isn’t speaking now, either.

Goodwin said he could not comment on any matters regarding student disciplinary measures.

Apparently, he can’t comment on his nonsensical, no-thinking-required policy of strict adherence to the rules,¬† either.

But I can.¬† I didn’t make any deals with a trained monkey.

    I’d love to agree with you, but I can’t. You see, I’m petrified about what They might put in my Permanent Record. Why, I might not be able to get into the Army if my Permanent Record gets dirtied up!

    I hope you’ll understand. [Really, you're absolutely-ay ight-ray!]

    Pig Latin? You’re expecting this poor old brain to read Pig Latin? Your age is showing, my friend … which I’m pretty sure disqualifies you for military service, anyhow.

    So live it up! Pack your survival kit!
