idiot alert from the New York Times – the Principal of Wilton High School, CT has prevented the students from performing an an original play about the war in Iraq. They compiled reflections of soldiers and others involved, including a heartbreaking letter from a 2005 Wilton High graduate killed in Iraq last September at age 19. He was worried the play might hurt Wilton families “who had lost loved ones or who had individuals serving as we speak,” and that there was not enough classroom and rehearsal time to ensure it would provide “a legitimate instructional experience for our students.” Sure you can have a war but just not let anyone talk about it – cause THAT might hurt em. Yep, that’ll learn them.
