When I was in school I was a little bit of a troublemaker. I got myself kicked out of a physics class for being disrespectful to the teacher. (He deserved it, but that’s another story.) The vice-principal in charge of discipline knew who I was. I read and used the ACLU Handbook of Student Rights.

But I never in my wildest dreams came close to whacking a hornet’s nest like this kid. And if I had I wouldn’t have handled the resulting furor with half his calm or efficiency.

This is the kind of thing that gives reactionary right-wing bastards like me hope for the future. My hat, if I had one, would be off to Mr. Henderson.
