    When you memory goes bye bye



    Goo Goo Dolls rocker JOHN RZEZNIK feels troublesome kids should be given a taste of religious schooling because he was terrified of getting beaten by the nuns who taught him. The IRIS singer had a strict Catholic school upbringing, but it made him respect authority and family values. He says, "I still flinch every time I see a nun. They would whoop your ass and then they'd call your parents and tell them why they'd whoop your ass and you'd go home and your parents would whoop your ass! "You read these things about kids bringing guns to school and I would never be caught dead with a gun at Corpus Christi grammar school because I would be afraid that the nun would take it away from me and pistol whip me."

    I wonder how much of these tales of nuns beating children are urban legends?

    I wonder what it would take to receive a beating?

    In my 12 years of parochial school, I saw one boy get hit for acting up in a fire drill line, and it sure wasn't a beating.

    Yes, this poor rocker is inventing history. Regardless of if he is aware of it or not... lost in the fog of his new realities.
