    She said "Hell"? Seriously? What the ****? "Hell" really isn't a bad word, is it?

    Or maybe the Principal should stop being a big baby and give her the diploma already.

    That's what she gets for using a quote out of Twilight. :o

    In all seriousness though, this is incredibly dumb.

    The people in charge at the school should get off their high horse & just give him his/her diploma. :whatever:

    This is one instance where I feel the lawsuit would not be frivolous. That's an unlawful act I'm sure. They can't win that unless they're like some Dukes of Hazzard county where Boss Hogg runs the court.

    Though she only verbally dropped an "h-bomb", someone should literally drop a real H-Bomb on that principle. Eradicate that dinosaur.

    I'm so sick and tired of people being offended by words. It's just a word, does it really make your ears bleed and ache??!

    Omgosh, just say you're freaking sorry and get your diploma. But I guess you want the national news attention, talk show appearances, and maybe that book deal you've always dreamed of. :whatever:

    Public school officials in the US are probably among the more incompetent, especially the administration. They waste tons of time trying to worry about things like this that don't matter because they are afraid of fraying from the rules because they have such a limited government budget and are afraid of lawsuits from someone being offended by language like that. It's truly pathetic.

    *rereads article*

    Ehh? The principal seems to be the type of person with delicate sensibilities who hates profanity, but I've encountered people like that whose opinion had nothing to do with religion. A couple of English teachers come to mind, in fact.

    This just about tops the story about the kid who was suspended when he went to a prom at another school because they had dancing and rock music.
