These People Are My Heroes
The administrators at Kellenberg Memorial High School in New York have done something I've wanted to see for a long time. They've abolished prom. It's about damned time somebody stood up and said the things the Administration of this school is saying: that prom is an obscene waste of money, a vulgar exercise in conspicuous consumption, an excuse for teenage binge drinking, and the occasion for a lot of unwise (and often unprotected) underage sex. Enough. These people have struck a blow for sanity.
