Message to School Officials: Lighten Up!

Two students in Westfield, Mass staged a rehearsed and choreographed lightsaber duel in their high school cafeteria.  Student witnesses laughed and gave them a standing ovation.  The principle gave them a suspension and barred them from walking in their graduation ceremony next Friday.  He cited the reasoning behind his actions.

“They very easily could have hit another student they could have started something different…someone could have gotten hurt,” said Westfield High School Principal Raymond Broderick.

Seriously?  Somebody needs to grow a sense of humor here.  Realistic toy guns I can understand, but plastic lightsabers?  I hope someone clues the administration into the fact that lightsabers don’t actually exist in our universe, that is to say, the real universe.

Kudoes to Club Jade for picking this up, and if you’d like to help the hapless duelers, you can do it on the facebook page supporting the students’ right to walk.
