“Teenage Editors Feel Bound and Gagged”

The editors of Everett High’s student newspaper—The Kodak—were angry after their principal cut a story from the paper. In protest, they took pictures of themselves with tape over their mouths and their hands tied and ran those in the paper. Robert Jamieson writes, “I’ll side with the kids on this one.” I’ll side with the kids too—hell, I’ll help out at their next photo shoot.

But a word of warning, Everett High eds: Turning your high school paper into a forum for bondage erotica may not be the best way to avoid censorship these days. It actually invites it. BDSM porn, however mild, is a porn genre the Bush Justice Department is currently waging war on. If you think your principal is a facist, eds, just wait until George W. and Alberto G. crawl up your ass.
