"Financial decadence" leads to cancellation of prom

Kenneth Hoagland, the principal of swanky Kellenberg Memorial High School in New York, has cancelled the prom:

"It is not primarily the sex/booze/drugs that surround this event, as problematic as they might be; it is rather the flaunting of affluence, assuming exaggerated expenses, a pursuit of vanity for vanity's sake -- in a word, financial decadence," Hoagland said, fed up with what he called the "bacchanalian aspects."

My first reaction is, "good for him!" It's about time someone makes a moral protest against something other than sex, booze, or drugs.

Seriously. Some parents need to be shot.

Exhibit A about why I don't intend to ever move back to Long Island
