Today I happened upon an article where someone said something that may have appeared to offend everybody, but once explained, offended nobody. It isn't clear what race the asst. principal is, so that may play a role, but it is really something to see that nobody overreacted, has demanded that she be fired or required to take sensitivity classes, and everybody is looking to help the community improve. More disturbing is that this appears to be a refreshing change of pace. Why don't we see things like this more often - is it the noise-makers are the exception to the rule, is this just not "newsworthy", or is this just that rare?
