    I like vampire books and True Blood on HBO is one of my favourite shows but Twilight - eh.
    True Blood is infinitely better than Twilight.

    OK - take a deep breath, let it out slow. Think about ice cubes.

    TIO my friends

    This is Oklahoma

    Oklahoma is the home of Elmore City which banned dancing for 100 years.

    Can't be letting those kids get too uppity, can't be letting them cuss. It will start a slide down that slippery slope to perdition.

    Thinking the school board will issue the certificate soon enough. Point was made.

    Silly crap like this must happen other places, but TIO.

    Why on earth would anyone take the side of the disobedient child in this dispute?

    She's valedictorian, but she enjoys the Twilight sage?

    Denying someone a diploma based off something as trivial as saying 'hell' is nonsensical.

    I'd sue the hell out of them. Diplomas are presented for academic achievement, not for political gain. Clearly, as class valedictorian, she earned the diploma. They'd damn well better give it to her.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You seriously side with the judgment of the school board, or are you merely joking?

    If I understand this correctly, a student gave a speech using language in violation of school policy and refused to apologize when asked. How could anyone support that?
