I was on a business trip with little access to the internet, but I'm back now...sort of.

Here's your amazing news of the day, with one of the best phrases I've seen in print in a long time.

"At this point we are planning on going forward with a lawsuit," said Lisa Duke of the San Antonio law firm of Anderson and Duke. "We have not filed the paperwork yet, but we will soon."

Incoming freshman Wycoda Fischer was cut after tryouts were held for six positions on the squad. Seven girls tried out. The family contends that because an exception was made for the varsity cheer squad, nine girls were allowed on instead of the eight called for in the high school's cheerleader constitution, that an exception should also be made for allowing Wycoda on the squad. The high school principal and cheerleading sponsor approved the expanded JV squad, but superintendent Deborah Kneese ordered tryouts.
I personally think we need more constitutions in this country. Cheerleader constitutions, pro athlete constitutions, hairdresser constitutions...the more the better!
