Idiots in action

CNN demonstrates how America has become the land of the lawsuit.

High school principals seem to be particularly prone to this type of autocratic idiocy. They spend their time dealling unfairly with children who can't complain, then they deal with the parents in the same way.

Tends not to be the sort of thing that happens to white middle class folk like myself who clearly have the means to impose an expensive lawsuit on the school if they can't get their way by complaining to the state representative, mayor etc.

The ACLU may not see a free speech issue, but there are plenty of claims that can be made, in particular defamation.
