Haircut Suspension

My guess is that a lot of you will side with Dustin Reader, who loves the Cincinnati Bengals so much that he had their logo shaved into his hair.  But the thing is, his school had warned him about his hair before.  So there's a good chance that Dustin knew it could've been against the code of conduct when he got his Bengals haircut.

Well, it landed him in in-school, but he's definitely gotten people talking.  His father believes the haircut is an example of freedom of expression, but that freedom (as you already know) is sometimes limited when you're in school.  So it's a question of whether the haircut is worth the hassle.  It seems to be for Dustin.  Would it be for you?

9/11 Trials

On September 11, 2001, 2752 people were killed when two planes were deliberately crashed into New York City's World Trade Center. In today’s show, we report on Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision regarding five alleged terrorists with ties to the 9/11 attacks. They will be tried in a New York civilian court blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood. Some disagree with this decision, saying that suspected terrorists should be tried in a military court at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They raise security concerns about having terrorist suspects on American soil. Defendants in a civil trial will have the Constitutional protections given to any U.S. citizen. One Congressman says he's concerned that could result in shorter sentences.

9/11 is, without a doubt, the most significant date in my lifetime, so many Americans are interested in this trial. It’s your turn! Tell us where you stand in this important debate: Do you think that terrorist suspects should be brought to America to stand trial under the U.S. Constitution, or in a military trial?
