On spanking in Texas (and other red states)

By now, you’ve all heard about the girl in Texas who was spanked* by a male assistant principal until she was “burned and blistered”.

Putting aside the whole opposite-sex spanking issue, which others have covered pretty well**,  what struck me most about the story when I saw it was this passing mention about which states …
