    Awesome, though that's a pretty desperate act to avoid a test. LOL

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    My school and that school are very intense rivals. We view them as a school for rich hippie kids. Needless to say there was much gossip on our campus about the incident. It is desperate, but it is also selfish. They canceled finals that day and had to reschedule them so some individuals had more tests than they anticipated on one day. For some they had to stay at school an extra day and delay traveling back to see their families.

    That was more than desperate, how incredibly selfish of him. There are sometimes more than one consequence to an act. I didn't consider it was finals. That was terrible impact to some kids. At the least they know he got caught and punished.
