'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' case limits student rights -

'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' case limits student rights -

Well, that's pretty much what I would expect out of a court that sees interstate commerce in the absence of state lines crossed and the absence of money changing hands, all the while involving a legal activity in the state in which it occurred.

This exemplifies the serious, paternalistic tone that is what makes the Carrie Nation culture so impervious to reason. His banner was a deliberate poke in the eye against irrational foolishness, and people who took the bait reveal themselves as irrational fools on two scores. 1) They are so swallowed up by the century-long, perpetually-stoked, hypocrisy-driven, self-escalatory anti-drug hysteria that they can't even recognize a baited fool-trap, and 2) they are so sure of their positions as moral protectors of the supposedly weak and innocent that they never even stop to think that his message is sophisticated, as are most of his generation, and aimed squarely at them. He could not lose this case. If he wins the case, he makes them agree with his message in front of a national audience. If he loses the case, he proves his point. Is John Roberts a smug dork, or what?
