Young Barack fans suspended
April 24, 2008
SCRANTON, Pa. -- Two high school seniors are paying a high price for their interest in politics.
Colin Saltry and Joey Daniel say they skipped gym class on Monday to rush over to a diner where Sen. Barack Obama's motorcade pulled in.
The two met Obama, and they say he even signed excuse slips for them to show their teachers.
That didn't work. Saltry and Daniel got one-day suspensions for leaving school grounds. AP
Frankly I think this is harsh and I don't think these kids should have been suspended. But rules are rules. Did Barry really thik he had the authority to sign these kids permission slips?
