Bong Hits 4 Jesus

I don’t have much to say about this case one way or another

The Supreme Court examines Monday a case raising questions over free speech rights in US high schools as it hears arguments over a student’s unfurling of a quirky banner proclaiming “Bong Hits 4 Jesus.”
Joseph Frederick drew the ire of his school principal in Juneau, Alaska, on January 24, 2002, when the then 18-year-old student unveiled the huge banner in front of television cameras as the Olympic flame passed in front of a crowd.
Principal Deborah Morse, whose school had authorized the students to leave class for the event, was not amused by Frederick’s linkage between Jesus and a bong, a pipe used to smoke marijuana.
Morse crossed the street, destroyed the banner and suspended Frederick from school for 10 days.

But it reminded me of something that some guys in a fraternity at UVa did. One of their brothers had some disease (not one of the usual fraternity diseases, mind you) and they decided to have a benefit to raise funds for his treatment. So they had a Bong-a-thon, where people pledged a certain amount of money for each bong hit they did.
And man, did they do a lot.

    Well, it was for a good cause Mr. Bingley. You might even say, a “high-minded” cause.
