School empire strikes back
In Massachusetts, Westfield High School officials suspended Tom Costello and Ryan Angco, and barred them from their graduation after the duo performed a mock battle with a Star Wars theme in the school cafeteria. Principal Raymond Broderick said they could have hit someone with their toy lightsabres.

Sideswipe often prints all sorts of brief weird and funny stories, many of which are "Politically Correct" idiocy like this, but it's impossible to tell what is actually real and what is simply nonsense they copied off the Internet. There was one recently where a school banned swimming goggles because the kids might hurt themselves if the elastic headstrap pinged them.
