An H for hypocrisy.  You may have already heard of Kaitlin Nootbar and her struggle to get her high school diploma.  Ms. Nootbar’s grades are not the issue; she got a 4.0 GPA.  And, she must have been well-liked, since she was picked to give the valedictorian speech at graduation.  It was that speech that got her in trouble.

Apparently, the written version of her speech had the word “heck” in it, but on stage she said, “hell”.  So school officials are holding her diploma ransom until she pays with an apology.  The funny thing is when you go to their website, you discover that Prague High School is the “Home of the Red Devils”  (http://prague.k12.ok.us/index.php?pageID=1078).  Really?

It confirms my belief that more mirrors are needed in the world.  And, in an odd way, it reminds me of a quote from Will Rogers: “In Hollywood the woods are full of people that learned to write but evidently can’t read. If they could read their stuff, they’d stop writing.”
