I can't believe she spent four years on that. Seriously.

If she believes so sincerely in the cause of the Confederacy, why wasn't she visiting the descendants of Confederate soldiers in nursing homes or restoring cemeteries or what have you? Once again, absolutely not kidding. To me, I think her time might have been better spent.

They are important, yes, and people can be very disapproving of someone burning a flag over here, but it isn't actually illegal to do it-it's protected as free speech.

Anywho, I think school dress codes are stupid as is, 'cause it's not the school's job to tell kids what they can and can't wear-so long as everything's covered that needs to be, I don't see why it's a problem. And while I understand the history with that flag and certainly don't approve of that history and all that, at the same time, it is just a flag, just a piece of cloth, and only means something to those who let it mean something to them. Maybe she's just proud of her Southern heritage, and not necessarily some of the horrible things that came with that.

But if school officials told her she couldn't wear it and she broke the rules, then she gets punished and that's that .

Its sequenned (sp?). If she used the old fashioned individual sequens rather than the new fangled ones already on a thread it would have taken a bloody long time.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. You're supposed to be relaxed and have a good time at the prom and let others do the same - not make some statement and make the prom all serious!

When will these people realize that they lost the Civil War already?

Being born and raised in places around battlefields where these men died I could tell another side of this, but I won't since I see most of your minds are already made up and I don't want to fight

u2k, despite the politics, this still smacks of utter and sheer stupidity. its JUST a dress and JUST a school dance. she is now 19 years old, and shes suing? this is why people on the outside look in and say 'you know, i think americans are a little tense...'
