Is Dodge Ball Too Dangerous? asks Time's "Time for Kids," an insipid children's version of the already simplified magazine. Answer: no.

This is my favorite part:

Some school districts that do not want to ban dodge ball have instead decided to change the rules to make it less violent. In several districts, kids who are hit with the ball get to re-enter the game so there are no hurt feelings. In other schools, kids aim at a deflated ball instead of other kids.

I am trying to imagine how totally lame these versions are, but I can't seem to do it without giggling so hard I can't type.
