Some news from Kentucky. Maybe Ms. Greenfield can teach lessons in proper text messaging now.

A middle school teacher trying to buy pot was arrested after she sent text messages to a state trooper instead of a dealer, police said.
Trooper Trevor Pervine was at dinner with his wife and parents celebrating a birthday when his phone started buzzing with messages about a marijuana purchase.
At first, Pervine thought the messages were from friends playing a joke, Kentucky State Police spokesman Barry Meadows said. But a couple of phone calls put that idea to rest, and Pervine responded to set up a meeting, Meadows said.
Authorities say Ann Greenfield, 34, arrived at the meeting point and found Pervine and other law enforcement officers waiting for her.
"She learned her lesson: Program your dealers into your phone," Meadows said.
Greenfield, a teacher at Murray Middle School, was charged with conspiracy to traffic in controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Meadows said.
She was suspended with pay pending results of an investigation, the Murray Independent School District said in a statement posted Friday on the district's Web site.
