Don't Know Much About Sept. 11 - II

Jason Ritter, that Cherry Creek teacher who was suspended for showing his class a video about Sept. 11 is back at work. The school disctrict claims that it was about a policy of not using unapproved outside materials. Somehow, I doubt that if he had used a Nightline report about the March on Washington 40 years ago, he would have been suspended.

By the way, who cares if the students staged a little civics-demonstration/protest outside the school? That just means he was popular; it says nothing about the merits of the case. It might be a cute dress-rehearsal for a real protest, or maybe even voting, someday, but kids will do just about anything to get outdoors on a nice day. Although one of them did note that they didn't need permission to read about Pearl Harbor.

Tustin Amole is the daughter of longtime Rocky columnist Gene Amole, who died last year, and to all accounts a good person with her father's common sense. How she could talk to the press about this with a straight face is beyond me, but I guess that's what all spokesmen do from time to time.
