Land of a Thousand Cowards

From the Minneapolis-St. Paul StarTribune:
A national tour featuring decorated veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan won't be stopping at Forest Lake Area High School today as planned, after school leaders abruptly canceled the visit.

Steve Massey, the school principal, said the decision to cancel was prompted by concerns that the event was becoming political rather than educational and therefore was not suitable for a public school.
Lesson for the kids to take home: Political correctness trumps the Constitution. Extra credit: The principal is a whining girlyman.

Update: Riehl World View looks at the principal's background.
