When you encourage people to act a certain way by giving in to them and giving them what they want, they'll just keep on doing it and continue to push it as far as they can push it.

All the principal had to say was "We meant no offense by it".

End of discussion.
 
Not sure that would satisfy the people who are pretending to be offended.  They require something to happen---some policy change, someone getting fired, some statue removed.
 
This is one situation that begs for the "Oh, fer cryin' out loud!" response.

Yeah, being offended on behalf of others always seems so patronizing, especially when the people they're offended on behalf of, are fully capable of being offended on their own.

Cherry Hill principal apologizes for 'insensitive' prom tickets
 
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The principal of Cherry Hill High School East has issued an apology after some words on the school’s senior prom tickets drew criticism.
 
The tickets told students to “party like it’s 1776,” because the dance is being held at the National Constitution Center.
 
“It was insensitive and irresponsible not to appreciate that not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776. I especially apologize to our African American students, whom I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” principal Dennis Perry explained in a letter to the community.

That, plus he has to wait until his mean old big brother goes in the bathroom to spend twenty minutes on the toilet, to sneak into his room and use his computer on the sly.

As soon as he hears the sound of the toilet paper roll spinning on the dispenser, he knows it's time to start logging off and return to the never ending drudgery of his household chores.

Poor ol fella....

I know - I guess what I heard is true - hard to type on your knees while getting that tub scrubbed, too. Do you wear one of those revealing 'French Maid' outfits? No pictures, please.

Naah...I just don't feel like being on the computer as much as I used to.  20 minutes a day at the most.  Maybe twice that on weekends.

CryYa got to remember he's OLD.
Could be dead - yea, that sounds about right -ya never know.
He lives a life of danger in a dangerous area, all those hefty Italian boyos hangin' around and him probably lookin' a little more old & Irish. They probably gave him some 'cement shoes' and tossed him into one of those plastic kiddy pools filled with 1 foot of water, where he drowned.

Since they've apparently lowered their standards, expect Pulitzers for coloring books and tweets soon, too...  LOL

Oh, fer Crissakes.  Seems rapper Kendrick Lamar just won a Pulitzer prize.
 
As I've done before with rappers, I Google the guy's name + "lyrics", click onto the top website, and then click onto the first song.  This makes it as random as possible.  That is, no cherry-picking.  Then I post the lyrics.  In this case, the song is Is It Love?.  Here we go (as usual, lotsa niggas, hoes, bitches, guns, violence and the worship of wealth---I mean, very nice and all, but Pulitzer prize material?? LOL):
 
Sit still and close your eyes (smoke to it)
What's behind the other door? Oh-ohh
No more silence (no more silence)
Don't kill this thing we got called love (don't shoot)
Just searching for the perfect shot

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar (Angela McCluskey)]
I used to write rhymes all day and all night
When y'all was playing PlayStation, my pencil was erasing lines
My conscience only knew what's half-tight
At 3:14, it's time to get me a slice my nigga
This is a dog's fight my nigga
The soundtrack to life my nigga
Kendrick Lamar, his momma called him that
He watched House Party and ate Apple Jacks
He sold Sega games, his cousin sold crack
He pumped Reeboks, his uncles pumped packs
Punk fake, jump-shot, ball hit the back
Ball dreams of being point guard was off limits Jack
That's because these Compton streets was built not to win
You killed the nigga, I stole a bible, is that a sin?
Part of me though, I'm searching for answers (just searching for the perfect shot)
The good kid from the ugly city that's mad that he's had some
Where is the love?

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey (Kendrick Lamar)]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away (where is the love?)
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar (Angela McCluskey)]
Give me rings, give me chains mayne
Give me a blue Benz, red Porsche, red Range
Give me black bitches, white hoes, new clothes
A mansion with marble floors and security codes
Then give me some landa, or maybe I'll land a
G5, clear port, say hello to the man
Give me awards, Grammies, and let the crowd applaud
my name till they strain the veins in they vocal chords
Give me fame and fortune, me and Trump on golf courses
With that being said, give me Tiger's sports endorsements
Give me billboards, whatever that people would kill for
Manhattan at 40/40, no forties but rose poured
Give me vanity, give me Kurt Cobain sanity
Give me a city where Channel 7 newscasters' cameras be
Give me horror like Amity, no, give me the charts (just searching for the perfect shot)
And if you ever renege, I'll still give you Kendrick Lamar
This is me, and that's love

[Chorus: Angela McCluskey]
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away
When love comes calling, don't look back
When love comes calling, don't look away

[Kendrick Lamar]
Now everybody smoke to it
for this is, the celebration

As another one of the few gals on here, I totally agree with you.  Unless you have really been raped (female or male), there is no place for these accusations, and going back decades is ridiculous.

Quote I actually saw a legal packaging for the first time the other day. In this case, the weed was balled up like a wood furniture plug. The recipient was SO HAPPY to have it, but not me.


Well, if that recipient prefers a weed suppository, who are we to argue...?  LOL

I developed an allergy to weed about 30 years ago. If I even smell it these days, I have to relocate. Darned druggies!
At least I'm not allergic to LSD, Thorazine, Crack, Seconal, Heroin, Opium, Beer...even when I mix them all together<wheeeew! Guess I'm safe - no red eyes, no residual scent>
