My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

PHHS On The National Stage

My alma mater, Patrick Henry High School, made the news recently for electing two lesbian girls as homecoming king and queen.  It's hard to believe that this is still a headline making event worthy of being relayed by CNN, but it's even harder to believe the number of hateful calls and e-mails the school has received from around the country.
“What is especially disappointing is that adults who have contacted the school, many of whom are not even San Diego residents, are demonstrating such a lack of tolerance and are presenting such a negative role model for children with their hateful comments,” San Diego schools superintendent Bill Kowba said Monday.
You can see the CNN Story here or read about it in the San Diego Union Tribune.

I watched the video clip and saw a group of high school kids cheering for their king and queen. Too bad the 'adults' haven't grown up enough to see it in the same way. And you're right, this is CNN news? Wow.

Also, thank you for the condolences on losing Screech; it's really difficult. Give those doggies of yours a hug from me.
