Oh, By the Way...

If you are a student, in public school, in Washington, don't plan on protesting the third anniversary of the fall of Baghdad by wearing your t-shirts. Thanks to Nerdgirl for tipping me off. There is something vaguely familiar about this situation. Regardless, what has our society come to when we so fundamentally diminish the rights of students? The Supreme Court decided this issue in the Tinker decision in 1969. We should not be teaching students that voicing their opinion is unacceptable, this will lead to an adult population willing to submit to actions of the State in conflict with our enumerated rights.
