News out of Houston this morning reports that a 7th grader who wore his “Star Wars” shirt to school, featuring a storm trooper holding his laser gun, was against school dress code. Apparently, the shirt promoted violence and the 7th grader was asked to keep his jacket zipped during the school day. Call me old fashioned, but I just don’t understand how a Star Wars shirt, featuring a storm trooper holding his laser gun, promotes, or encourages violence! What is this world coming too? Somebody quick, buy this kid tickets to watch Thursday’s premiere. He deserves it! May the force be with you, 7th grade boy from Houston, who wears his Star Wars shirt to school because it’s awesome!
