Is wearing an outfit made of duct tape out of line?  One Catholic school board thinks so.  Mike Seguin, assistant superintendent of education with the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board in Canada, said the practice was banned at a popular hockey game after officials became concerned that the outfits were becoming increasingly immodest. Some students wore the duct-tape tops anyway and were suspended.
