Betep: True Leaders don't have liquored up friends.

What do you call 100 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

The perfect ending to a carnival cruise?

So you're saying that women play volleyball?  I've never heard of such a concept, and am having difficulty visualizing it, so I think some photos would be helpful.

RoyBatty: She makes Gloria Allred seem balanced.

So she's about 1/2 of a Jane Velez Mitchel and only 1/4 of a Nancy Grace?

Best to learn how to deal with petty bureaucrats early.

I side with the school.  Just because she hadn't started drinking yet, there is only one reason to go to a party with alcohol.  Clearly, any student who is found at or near a place where alcohol can be served should be punished.  It is the only way to be sure.

undernova: jaayjones: "She might as well just let it go, when you're dealing with primary and secondary-school administrators, you're not really dealing with the cream of the crop of civil servants and stupid sometimes happens,  "

As opposed to the genius in the Whitehouse

The choads come out in the morning hours, I suppose...

Well, you've got to get up early to run the government, even if most of it is shut down.

Eh, volleyball's not a big recruiting thing for colleges, so in all fairness this only hurts the school in the long run -- they lose the cooperation and participation of one of their better students, her college applications look essentially completely identical.

She might as well just let it go, when you're dealing with primary and secondary-school administrators, you're not really dealing with the cream of the crop of civil servants and stupid sometimes happens, principals and superintendents are the people that didn't have the brains to make it in construction or the people skills to swing it at the DMV.

I enjoy being reminded of all the injustices I could have been spared  (or at least avenged), had the internet been around when I was a kid.

Two weeks ago, Cox received a call from a friend at a party who was too drink to drive.

better then being driven to drunk.

I have zero tolerance for these asinine policies that school administrators use to evade the need to take responsibility for their shiatty judgement.

And it's ridiculous that they'd have anything to say about it even if she *were* drinking, unless she were doing it on school grounds.

And I remember high school well enough to think "I was totally just here to pick someone up" sounds like bullshiat.

RoyBatty: Due to their choice of attorney, which may or may not be their fault, I find it difficult to believe anything they are saying.

I am not saying they are lying. I am not saying the girl did anything wrong. I am very glad they have an attorney - I think more parents should sue zero tolerance policies, I am saying Wendy Murphy is a media whore and a known liar and her association with the family makes me more skeptical than I might otherwise be.

She makes Gloria Allred seem balanced.

I'd agree, but (at least according to the article):
Police arrested several students for underage possession of alcohol, however, Cox was cleared by police for not drinking or in the possession of alcohol

That's good enough for me.
