wayward writes “Students at Pope John XIII, a Catholic high school, were told to take down their blogs from sites like Xanga and MySpace or face suspension. Rev. Kieran McHugh, the school’s principal, said that he was trying to protect students from online predators. Not too surprisingly, free speech advocates got more than a little concerned.
The reason for the double take is that I attended Pope John XXIII Regional High School in Sparta, New Jersey. Yeah, the article and the summary both get the name of the school wrong, but that sure is Rev. Msgr. Kieran McHugh they’re talking about. I guess the person who wrote the article for the Asbury Park Press didn’t do too well with Roman numerals.
I’m going to be keeping myself abreast of the situation, and if I find out anything interesting, I’ll be sure to post about it.
