Here's further proof, if any should be needed, that grand romantic gestures are overrated.

High school senior James Tate wanted to impress his friend by asking her to their prom in Shelton, Conn., in a way the whole world would notice, The Connecticut Post reports.

So naturally he went to the school in the middle of the night and taped foot-high pieces of cardboard on its entrance to spell out "Sonali Rodrigues, Will you go to prom with me? HMU Tate." (Gawker says HMU means "hit me up." Kids these days.)

The good news: She said yes! The bad news? Tate is now banned from attending the prom because school officials say he was trespassing and risked his life by using a ladder to put up the romantic request.

"This is really upsetting," Rodrigues told the paper. "It's our senior year and we are supposed to have happy memories, not something like this."

Lucky for the pair, the mayor of Shelton himself is getting involved in their case. Mayor Mark Lauretti told a local Fox affiliate he doesn't think the "punishment fits the crime." And as the tale of Tate's predicament spread on national news sites, 30,000 people have joined a group on Facebook in support of the potential prom date. (Shelton's total population, by comparison, is 40,000.)

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

It's the day and age of being "Politically Correct". It's a bunch of bs if you ask me.

This has absolutely nothing to do with political correctness.
But it IS still shaganappi--as we have no evidence that Shelton High is so strict in enforcement against graffiti/vandalism.

The guy should get a medal.

Problem is that corporations/government agencies/schools/ngo's and what-have you are so

dominated by lawyers interfering with normal liberties using "what if" rules prohibiting the most

harmess activites, It's like a police state where we are all being protected against doing normal things.

I was shocked to see the town where I used to live tear down a very sturdy stainless steel playground

slide just because they probably thought someone would get dizzy and fall from the top before zipping down.

Those kinds of slides were everywhere in the 50's and nobody thought they presented a hazard then.

Naturally they think they are geniuses when they replace the stainless steel slide with some moulded plastic ######.

No, not good enough I'm afraid.

The conceited myth that "political correctness" somehow accounts for overbearing health and safety legislation, or nanny-state ideology, is a lie spun purposely by its detractors.

Political correctness is nothing more (or less) than a progressive movement towards a more egalitarian and formally inclusive language, seeking to revise an imperfect and intolerant vernacular left over from the institutionally bigoted societies of the past.

It's an absolute non-sequitur in this context.
