Show plug:
At 11 [on ESPN2]: Make Donald #Sterling walk through South Central LA? Essentially Yankees did this in '38. Plus Allan Havey (Lou Avery on @MadMen_AMC)

Also, the latest on the other Redskins:

I'm joining the show in progress tonight.

"Angry Goalie" is a classic! I could watch this for minutes on end --

So many analogies in politics I can think of.

As my mom used to say when one of us lost our self control and got hurt (not too seriously): "Good for ya. That'll teach you!"

Watching the show from the beginning now. GREAT opening essay (this is becoming repetitive, LOL). I'm not at all surprised that the ignorant player who shot off his face on the radio, resulting in his being forced to take a walking tour thru Harlem, was from Ohio. :roll:

UPDATE --
For immediate release:
Neshaminy newspaper adviser named PSPA Journalism Teacher of the Year

TARA HUBER, veteran student publication adviser at Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, PA, has been named Journalism Teacher of the Year for 2014-2015 by the Pennsylvania School Press Association.

In the past six months the Neshaminy High School student newspaper, The Playwickian, has made state and national news by refusing to compromise on its state-protected right to determine its own publications policy, despite the school board and administration calling for acquiescence to their demands.

Huber was lauded by PSPA for her courage in support of her staff throughout the year in the face of overwhelming pressure.

Fellow Neshaminy English teacher Dennis Howie, in nominating Huber for the award, said that such support was “hardly new for Tara, for she championed the students’ First Amendment rights during her long tenure as adviser to The Playwickian.”

Huber is completing her fourteenth year as adviser.

Dr. Jane Blystone, professor at Mercyhurst College and longtime PA student journalism expert, in her nomination of Huber, said “Tara is a leader in our state for quality student publications. She supports her students, insisting on their First Amendment rights. Great advisers stand up under the duress of challenge, as Tara has. We are honored to know her and we support her work in promoting quality journalism in Pennsylvania.”

Robert Hankes, PSPA president, called her “a patriot for student expression and the PA School Code –- a hero among us.”

Huber has influenced every aspect of English instruction over the past decade at Neshaminy -- everything from working on numerous committees to teaching summer school. She has also spent the past ten years teaching English part-time at Today, Inc., a substance abuse program. She holds a Master’s degree in Education from Temple University and a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communications from Lehigh University.

Huber [was] formally recognized by PSPA at its Student Journalism Competition on October 15, 2014 at Temple University.

UPDATE: Neshaminy HS and Where Are They Now?

Postby Marie » Sun Aug 11, 2019 3:44 pm

You can spot the brilliant ones early on. It's one of the pleasures of teaching. Here's a great example:

She fought her high school on censorship; now she’s gone national
By Kristen A. Graham
The Philadelphia Inquirer
August 11, 2019

GRACE MARION WAS HOOKED ON JOURNALISM from her first days as a student at Neshaminy High School. She files records requests for fun, and visibly brightens when discussing media law. Over her four years at Neshaminy, Marion clashed with the administration, battling what she says was censorship and the mishandling of sexual-misconduct claims.

Now Marion, a 2018 graduate of Neshaminy, has won national recognition for her high school work. This month she was named winner of a Society of Professional Journalists prize for “outstanding service to the First Amendment.” It was another in a string of high-profile awards for Marion, who had multiple articles cut or changed by administrators during her time as editor of The Playwickian, Neshaminy’s student newspaper. Marion also received threats over her work and revealed, after years of investigation, what she described as a school policy of placing sexual-misconduct allegations against staffers not in their files but in students’ records.

“Talk about grace under pressure,” said Michael Koretzky, an SPJ staffer responsible for selecting Marion for the award. “Most high school journalists respond to harassment and intimidation by either lashing out or folding up. Grace did neither. Instead of screaming or crying, she just did … more journalism.” Earlier this year, Marion, 19, won a Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award for her Neshaminy work and has spoken about her experiences at conventions around the country.

Student journalists at the Bucks County school have a history of battling administrators. In 2013, the student newspaper staff said they would stop using the name of the school’s mascot, the Redskin, because they considered it a racial slur. Neshaminy administrators told the student journalists to print the word, an order the young people disregarded. Gillian McGoldrick, the newspaper’s then-editor-in-chief, was temporarily suspended from her position, and its faculty adviser was also suspended for “willful neglect of duties and insubordination.” In 2014, the school board passed a policy that forbade editors from removing “Redskins” from editorials, but allowed them to ban it from news and sports stories.

By the time Marion began high school in 2014, she was already interested in politics, history and writing. She gravitated toward the newspaper staff and quickly became an editor. During her years at the paper, Marion said the administration opposed free speech, minimized or ignored sexual assault and harassment claims, cut the newspaper’s budget, and even outed LGBTQ students. She challenged them every chance she had.

“They would refuse to print things, and they wouldn’t tell us why,” said Marion, who hails from Levittown and is about to enter her sophomore year as a journalism major at the University of Mississippi.

She refused to attend her graduation as a protest. In her farewell piece as editor of The Playwickian, Marion wrote that she would not “honor a school that supports the oppression of free speech, of LGBTQ+ rights, and of the victims of sexual assault and harassment.” A spokesperson for the Neshaminy School District declined comment.

Though Marion has moved on to Ole Miss, where she writes for the student newspaper, she still has Neshaminy on her mind. She said she plans to pursue a lawsuit challenging the Neshaminy school board policy that ties student journalists’ hands over banning the school’s mascot name. “It’s a violation of the First Amendment,” said Marion.

The Neshaminy School District is still awaiting the results of a January Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission hearing over its mascot nickname. The commission is legally challenging Neshaminy’s use of the Redskin name and its Native American imagery as offensive. A spokesperson for the Human Relations Commission said the panel is still reviewing responses and has not yet arrived at a decision.
