  As a child, my number one best friend was the librarian. I actually believed all those books belonged to her. When she warned that some of those books were too old for me, I told her they were for my mother. I have never regretted my dishonesty.

florida high school yearbook insanity

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005 10:23 pm

This is at least the second such story out of Florida in the last couple of years. This year — 2005, not 1955 — high school principal Sam Ward at Fleming Island High School in Clay County, Florida, has decided that the high school yearbook will not publish the photo of a senior young woman who had her picture taken in a “tuxedo” top instead of a “drape” top.

The mind boggles at this guy’s stupidity. How is he 50 years behind? Why on earth are the students not rising up in protest? This kind of idiocy from adults, and apathy / “good soldier” behavior from students is why I will never, ever live in the South again.
