My Little Pony 1, thugs 0

USA Today reports that Buncombe County Schools will be reversing their earlier ban on a 9-year-old boy’s bringing his “My Little Pony” bag to school. The boy, Grayson Bruce, had been pushed, punched, and insulted by classmates because of his bag, and the school tried to stop the bullying by ordering the victim to leave his bag at home; that is now being changed. For more on the story, and why I think such things matter, see this post from Monday.

Thanks to Robert Dittmer for the pointer.
