So a valedictorian in Oklahoma used the word "hell" in her commencement address... The school's response to this egregious misconduct?
Screw her, we will withhold her diploma. Maybe I'm just getting old and angry.
My only wish, is that I could be a graduating student at this school. I would walk into the school administrator's office and say, "How about handing over that diploma or... you and I dance, asshole?"
When I was a kid, that's how disputes were settled. Somehow and sometimes, I miss the effectiveness and the quickness with which conflicts were resolved.
Nowadays, they say that's not civilized or that violence doesn't solve anything. Bet me.
I have grown weary of a government that censures free speech for absolutely no other reason than to flex muscle. I have grown weary of a system that talks due process but never practices it. And I am sick of government officials behaving like this. That's why I started this blog, I guess. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/valedictorian-denied-diploma-speech-hell-134805221.html
