Fit For a Queen

Fairfax Senior High School's newest Prom Queen really is a queen:
When an openly gay high school senior was voted prom queen at his Los Angeles high school last weekend, the school's students and officials not only accepted it, they basked with pride in being one of the most diverse and tolerant schools in the nation.
Why can't Johnny read? In large part because his school officials are idiots. The Queen was crowned not because high school teenagers have suddenly become thoughtful, tolerant young adults, but because they thought it was funny.
