A Sesser High School student was sent home from class Wednesday morning for wearing what school officials deemed an obscene t-shirt. David Clark Jr. via Southern Illinoisan

So let me get this straight, a kid gets kicked out of school for having a t-shirt about his Dachshund, but a teacher in the next town over does drugs and is a drunk, and can STILL teach school? I think Southern Illinois schools need to get their priorities straight. So if my kid orders a hot dog, by any other name, for lunch, would he be thrown out? If you sing the "Oscar Myer Weiner" song would he be maced by the new security officer they are talking about? I hope there is never an Austrian exchange student, because if he or she would say "Ich bin ein Weiner!" they would cause an international incident that would need the UN. I hope the ACLU holds the school's "Wieners" to the fire

Ok, when I was in school, if you had an "offensive" t-shirt, they had you turn it inside out and go back to class. So in an age where the "no child left behind" act is kicking schools' collective butts, they are now depriving kids of education based on poor fashion choices? Where's Ashton Kutcher? We're all getting "punkd".

i think you all missed the point here
we have rules and i think school officials did the right thing
i saw the truck with the i love dave's wiener on the tailgate the other day
my first thought was this guy is gay then i thought is'nt that illegal
sesser is a small town, good schools and good churches.
okay i admit you got your attention, now why not be a good citizen and get back to the basics of life, i am not blaming the young man here, but his parents should know better. keep sesser clean and morally respectful

Your joking right morally what? So you saw a sticker that made you think sombody was gay and you think it should be against the law? Thats kinda warped thinking in my mind. If the Oscar Myer Wiener Mobile drives through, are you going to set up roadblocks? I will never understand my own roots. Here you got everyone voting pure democrat on every election but everyone is more to the right than any republicans. I can understand FDR saving a generation,and the farmers and unions always are in the democrats pockets,but everyone has that Smallville right wing attitude. I am more to the right than anyone but at least I know what side of the fence to stand on.Churches? Really its none of their business what I would wear. I remember as a kid how they would gang up and harrass one of the most outstanding buisiness men in Sesser because they objected to the magazines he was selling. Schools?? Well I am sure its changed since I was in, all I know is I never seen a school with so many coaches and PE teachers in all my life. There was a little war going on in South-East Asia, and rules at the time was, go to college, don't get drafted. Thats being a good citizen right?
Another thing, since I am spouting off about Sesser and will probably never be allowed in town again, I wish they would drop the Oprah publicity stunt already. I know the town has progressed a bit since I lived there, but do you think 25 years ago if she came into town, as, say a Chicago Newswoman, doing a story on a miner's strike, that she would be welcomed?
When I was a kid and on the way to cubscouts, some bully in town asked me if I knew David Clark. I said I did and for some reason the kid beat the tar out of me. Well I tell you. I am still willing to get the tar beat out of me for David and his son.

David didnt beat me up it was some kid who was sick in the head.Just did it cause he didnt like David..Anyway Where I am living now? Ill tell you where I'm living now. In a trailer with 3 other dudes in the middle of nowhere,in a dusty hot place,that reaches temps of 105+, where you have to carry a loaded weapon everywhere you go, working 12 to 18 to 24 hour shifts, in place that people hate us and would probably kill me if they had the chance. Here the women are treated like cattle and have NO rights, one can't drink a beer if he wanted to, would go to prison if caught with those magizines that were "banned" in Sesser,have NO religious freedom except the one the government says is ok, and free thinking ideas could also land you in prison or worse. I am doing this so YOU can have your opinion, live in your nice little town, and express yourself.When I get the chance, I will pay a visit. Ill be at the VFW.
