First the President, now ...?

Ken Starr, once the dogged pursuer of powerful prey such as the President of the United States has now finds himself working to prosecute ahigh school kid. Joseph Frederick of Juneau, Alaska finds himself in the crosshairs of Mr. Starr, the man who once hunted Presidents, who has taken his case against the high school student to the Supreme Court, trying to make sure that Frederick stays expelled. His crime? Holding up a sign and refusing to put it down when told to do so by the principal.

The only problem is that it wasn't during school hours. Or on school property. What could the sign have said that would anger people so much?

Oh, that'd probably do it. Got it on TV you say? Well, you should know by now that First Amendment rights don't apply when you're making fun of Jesus...
