Kids of La Cañada must be growing awfully cynical these days. You think their problem is with a teacher who allegedly referred to a student in a bigoted way, but no. The bigger issue is with their role models.
Consider this: Their parents are too timid to come forward and take a stand, presumably for fear of retribution. Instead, they opted to throw Cindy Wilcox into the ring while they remained in the spectator seats. I suppose this is not the spirit which is exhibited daily by other Americans in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Their school principal has not demonstrated commitment to a speedy resolution. Neither did the principal go out on a limb to personally assure, in public, no retributions.
