Political Correctness hopefully has found its end…

What is the appropriate expression for this day, September 11th in the American dialog?

Puzzled Confused Lost Signpost Showing Puzzling ProblemFox and Friends asked its viewers what story outraged them the most this morning. And this one out of Michigan was an easy winner: an Army officer was apparently told he could not enter his daughter’s school because he was wearing his Army uniform.

His wife, Rachel Ferhadson, explained what happened via phone. Ferhadson and her husband, Lt. Col Sherwood Baker, had stopped at Rochester Adams High School in Rochester Hills during the day to clear up an issue with his daughter’s class schedule.

But when Baker tried to go in, a security guard told him that he could not enter wearing the uniform because it could offend people, Ferhadson recounted.

“They told him some kids might not understand and might be offended. So they gave him a choice, told him CLOUD finger-illusionshe could phone in to the office or go home and change his clothes,” said Ferhadson.

At that point, the couple called the superintendent’s office from the parking lot and a staff member came out to let him in the school.

Ferhadson says the superintendent, a combat Marine veteran himself, was also “appalled” at what happened and the principal has also expressed regret to the family.

“I feel a lot better about it now than I did 24 hours ago. … They have taken steps to correct what happened.”

Ferhadson says she “doesn’t know what they would have done” if officials had stood by the security guard and not allowed her husband into the school.

pukeIn a statement to Fox 2 in Detroit, superintendent Robert Shaner said, “The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school. The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”
