Profiles in Stupid

On November 28th, Zach Rubio was suspended from his Kansas high school for speaking Spanish during lunch. Fortunately, when the district superintendant discovered Zach's principal had done this, he reversed the decision, apologized, and sent Zach back to school with an apology.

We'll see whether that's enough to preclude a lawsuit. The principal, apparently unaware that the US is still, nominally, a free country, also seemed to forget that the school itself had no rule against using languages other than English.
