“To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi”

-William Faulkner (1897-1962) American author

Last month a federal court ruled that a Mississippi school district violated a teenage girl's constitutional rights by not allowing her to invite her girlfriend to her high school prom. The school actually canceled the prom to keep her from attending but the other student's parents agreed to hold a prom off campus for all students. Instead they set up two proms, a sham one for girl and another one of the rest of the students.

Thank you, Mississippi, for being strong enough to stay on the path of ignorance. No wonder you rank second to last as Best Educated State and last as Best State to Live.

UPDATE (12:45 PM): It wasn't only the gay kids sent to the fake prom, they also sent two learning-disabled students.
