This is quite possibly the worst writing I have ever forced myself to dredge through.

"He said not much of the air conditioning system is affected, which could be a blessing."

No, it's merely positive.

"We was in the Tecumseh gym and they told us that we don't have to go to school because there's a fire and there's too much smoke," said sophomore Darren Englert.

Nobody could get a quote from someone who can speak English?

"Maybe a little I got to do my biology homework," said freshman Austin Hartz.

Guess not.

I hate to break the bad news to you, but literacy is no longer a requirement to graduate from high school. And from reading some of the "english composition" pieces that have been written by my college student, literacy is no longer a requirement at universities, either. Very poor spelling, even worse vocabulary. Hell, most cannot even tell you the difference between "There", "Their" and "They're". Personally, I was taught those 3 back in early grade school. And I HATED english classes.

I see you hold the righteous high ground on many issues Eric. You might limit the use of profanity, however, it makes you sound ignorant.

LOL! The school needs to do better at teaching proper english : "We was in the Tecumseh gym and they told us that we don't have to go to school because there's a fire and there's too much smoke," said sophomore Darren Englert. We was in?! Aparently either the teachers dont do their job, or this kid is just an idiot! ""Maybe a little I got to do my biology homework," said freshman Austin Hartz." I got to? Dont you mean you need to, or still need to complete? SO, im asking the media to either interview inteligant individuals, or get an editor before posting stories.
Because your not helping to prove that the general public is just plain dumb!

Matt East. Let me inform you that a proper way to end a statement or a thought is by using a " ." or a " ,". Now those are called a period or a coma. Repeted use of these PUNCUATION MARKS is just silly in your statement. Pay closer attention in school, or rather, try taking summer english or grammer classes. Do America a favor and become educated. Too many people pride them selves on being idiots.

Sorry Mike. I hold nothing righteous, but I do have my own (and according to my wife, sometimes warped) opinions on pretty much any subject that has or can come up. As for the use of the word "hell", it's a word. And every so often, I choose to use it for the purpose of getting my point across. Then again, sometimes I use it just because it fits.
