Congrats to Heathyre Farnham, a high school student in Ithaca, NY for standing up for what she believes in (and we all know is right). I'm continually disappointed with educators today, such as Principal Ann Sincock who told Heathyre that her t-shirt saying "Gay, OK by me" was inappropriate. It's people like her that should be sent home.
