    HM,

    It is a sad day in America when stories like this appear on a regular basis. While political correctness does have a small place in our society, as I see it, many have taken it way too far. Unfortunately it is usually these folks who get the press coverage....

    it is a sad day in America when stories like this appear on a regular basis

    What exactly is sad about this? Was it

    1. The students wearing Mexican flags,
    2. The other students wearing American flags,
    3. The reaction of the school authorities to ban the flags, or
    4. The public outcry that caused the school authorities to reverse their policy?

    I'm guessing that you mean #3. I don't think that what the authorities did had anything to do with political correctness -- they were trying to be responsible and defuse a tense situation. They over-reacted, and public opinion caused them to change their minds. What is sad about that?

    u almost wonder if their doing it just to get the press coverage.

    They who? The Mexican students, the other students, the administrators, or community members who complained? I sincerely doubt that the administrators were looking for press coverage -- certainly not the kind that they got!
