The story was also picked up by MSNBC: <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/ 

I thought the last paragraph was particularly ironic: "The complaint  
says there is nothing in the weapons policy that would apply to the  
picture Agin submitted. It also says the weapons policy is  
arbitrarily enforced, noting theatrical plays at the school have  
included prop weapons and that the mascot — a patriot — is depicted  
on school grounds and publications as carrying a weapon."

*shaking head*

And people in government wonder why "home schooling" is on the rise...

I wonder whether, in the future, they will allow stage fencing when  
they produce (pretty much any of) Shakespeare's plays? That would, of  
course, violate the "zero tolerance" policy as stated by the school's  
spokes-pinhead... er, I mean, principal.
