How ConVENient

According to an article in the paper today over half of the students at Liberty High School did not attend school last Wednesday. Rumors of someone coming to school and shooting it up Columbine style had begun spreading the week before. School officials checked into it and decided there was nothing to worry about. Then The Californian ran a small article saying the rumors were not true. All hell broke lose after that and now the paper has an article questioning whether the media attention is detrimental or not. They questioned school employees, parents and students and had quotes from all of them.

The one thing NO body mentions was that last Wednesday was April 20th. 4/20. Ring a bell? I bet there were more kids out of school for that reason than the other.

Added note - If any of you are wondering what I'm talking about I suggest you go here.
