Graduation Is Upon Us

Our oldest child walks across the stage tomorrow to receive her hard earned diploma. She has worked so hard and we are so proud of her accomplishments, often in the face of adversity. Her class is remarkably accomplished, sporting three valedictorians and a salutatorian. The GPA spread from #1 to #20 is about 0.15. These kids deserve a shout out, but beware of cheering for your grad aloud at the ceremony lest you get arrested or the administration withhold your kid's diploma until they or your family serve 20 hours of community service. These stories were featured by Anderson Cooper on CNN last week as "lunkheads of the week" or whatever he calls the feature where he pans stupid decisions on the air. Click on the link below for more on this story. I can't add any more to this ridiculous story except, "anal-retentive much?"

Graduations should be fun, not stuffy. How ever for people who think it's o.k. to scream, hoot, and holler for their graduate they should know just how silly they look and sound. It embarrasses everyone around including the graduate.
