An update on Anjali Datta, the brainiac from Dallas I wrote about yesterday who has been denied the honor of being her high school's valedictorian solely because she had the temerity to post an unprecedented GPA in only three years instead of the required four: As you can read in this well-written editorial by Jacquielynn Floyd of the Morning News, she and her family are taking this boneheaded move a hell of a lot better than I would. And maybe, in the process, they're teaching all of us, including the twits in the school district's administration, a more valuable lesson than can be found in any textbook.
I still would have sued, though. And I know for sure than my mother would have. That's why I love her!
