No Flowers For You


Melissa Morin looks just fine in this photo, but her high school won't publish it in their yearbook. Why? Because she's holding that flower.

The school has a "no props in yearbook photos" rule. The principal imposed the rule after an incident in another New Hampshire school where a student posed for his yearbook picture with a gun.

In today's zero tolerance world, you can understand where the same rule that applies to a gun would also apply to a flower, right? Ah, no.

More on the story here.
