Don’t yell ’fire!’ in a movie theater, either

The Associated Press (via the Chicago Tribune) reports that a student lost a free speech case in a ruling handed down by the Supreme Court. At a "school-sanctioned event," the high schooler unfurled a banner that read "Bong Hits 4 Jesus." Right. The AP says:

Frederick said the banner was a nonsensical message that he first saw on a snowboard. He intended the banner to proclaim his right to say anything at all.

Frederick's principal, claiming the student was advocating illegal drug use, disabused him of the notion that he could say "anything at all" and, today, so have the Supremes. I think his high school civics teacher should be equally concerned that at least one student got an inadequate education in the limits on free speech.
