Most of you have probably heard in the news about the cheerleader incidents at McKinney North “hah skrewl” (a little Rush lingo, there).  You’ve heard about how it caused the cheerleader sponsor to resign, citing a lack of support from school administration when it came to discipline – primarily because the ringleader of these miscreant girls was none other than the principal’s daughter herself.  And you’ve heard about how it subsequently cost that principal her job, albeit with a $70,000 payout and a letter of recommendation.

Nice severance, if you can get it.

Anyway, the girls are now telling their side of the story:

“It was a stupid mistake,” Elizabeth Griffin, 18, one of the cheerleaders, told The Dallas Morning News on Saturday. “We will never live it down, but we never thought about that at the time.”

Awright, fine.

But in reading further down in that article, I find one paragraph to be extrememly disturbing:

Ms. Theret [The principal in question.  -ED.], who resigned under an agreement before Christmas, canceled a scheduled interview Saturday. Bob Hinton, her attorney, said she wasn’t ready to talk. But he asserted that Karrissa and the other girls’ behavior wasn’t unusual.

“Wasn’t unusual”?

Let’s review what it was that brought this to the fore:

The five McKinney North High School cheerleaders, each in uniform and holding phallus-shaped candles, thought it would be funny to pose for the picture inside a condom store – a harmless joke for their friends to see on MySpace.

“Wasn’t unusual”?

Maybe that’s the problem.

    The Mom’s comment should tell you something about the way many kids are raised these days.

    True. Amazing how that works today.
