Bong Hits 4 Jesus

I absolutely agree with Beth Bragg this morning that the Juneau School District is only making itself look bad by taking the "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case to the Supreme Court.

If the Juneau School Board, in its infinite stubbornness, is so worried that the message waved on a banner four years ago at a nonschool event will lead high school kids down the path to illegal drug use, why does it insist on giving the message such tremendous exposure?

Google "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" and you'll get 14,100 hits. Included among them is proof positive that the message has become part of the vernacular: It has its own Wikipedia entry.

To add a point that Bragg wouldn't be aware of, KNOM airs every story on this case because saying "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" is just a lot of fun. Try it. It just rolls off the tongue so nicely.
