Shave their eyebrows OFF? Excuse me?
Specially groomed eyebrows a headache at Oregon high school: "PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Portland high school is raising eyebrows with its brow grooming policy: shave 'em or go home. Some students at Centennial High School have shaved vertical lines into their eyebrows in a trend recently made popular by hip-hop star Soulja Boy. School officials say the mark looks like a gang symbol. Centennial administrators are telling students with the lines that they can't return to school until they shave their eyebrows off."
The problem here is that these are local government officials who don't get the basic idea that they are just people with a certain limited amount of authority. School administrators are so grotesquely overpaid now that they think they are demi-gods of some sort. Do we need to amend the Constitution to protect Freedom of Eyebrows?
