I just happened past a radio carrying Sean Hannity, and he was talking to a high school girl who had dared to speak out against discriminatory scholarships and the recipients who did not appreciate them and had been suspended for doing so. No doubt coverage of the incidient is to be found amongst the edublogs. Claiming to play Devil's Advocate, Hannity asked what had prompted her to voice such an opinion where it would be upsettinng to her fellow students.

Her answer? "Hey, I'm an immature sixteen year old school girl." I like that. She is not complaining that she is being punished; only that the severity is out of proportion to what it would have been had the content been different. Shouldn't happen under zero tolerance.
