This Las Vegas Judge Rules
When parents at a local high school tried to stop student productions of Rent and The Laramie Project, District Court judge David Wall denied a request for a preliminary injunction, ruling that no irreparable harm would occur if the shows went on.
It’s easy to understand why parents wanted to stop the shows. One day the kids are doing Rent, the next they discover La Boheme, and then before you know it, they’re seriously into opera. After that, who knows? String quartets?? And Laramie? It’s a documentary!! What next? The History Channel??
It’s a slippery slope, let me tell you.
