Lee Harvey Oswald's Fave Teacher

An Alabama geometry teacher decided to teach a lesson about straight lines and angles using a real world example: assassinating the president.

"He was talking about angles and said, 'If you're in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president,' " said one student in the class.

Birmingham's Secret Service didn't find the high school math teacher to be a credible threat, but the school has placed him on leave anyway.

Good move by the school. I'm all for inspirational teachers, but not like that! I'm really hoping the teacher is simply a hapless buffoon trying to spice up a boring lesson. But then, it is Alabama.

Good point. At least the teacher didn't literally brandish a firearm.
