SPLCView: With all the truly outrageous or “unique” acts of administrativecensorship that take place and that tend to fill the pages of SPLC publications,it’s worth including one that is much more typical. There is nothing flashy orexceptional about what is happening at Danbury High School and, more often thannot, it’s the sort of censorship case we deal with a number of times each weekand that would usually fly under the public’s radar, known only to the students,the local community and the SPLC staff. Its “routineness,” however, makes itmore, not less lamentable.
