THE VERY MODEL OF A MODERN PROTESTOR:

 In the picture Sydney Spies, 18,
 submitted for her Durango, Colo., High School yearbook, her hair flows
 between her bare shoulders to a top that ends high enough to reveal her
 midriff. After learning that the image had been rejected as a senior
 portrait, Spies, her mother, and other students held a protest,
 accusing school officials of censorship. But in a meeting with a
 reporter, the yearbook’s student editors claimed responsibility for the
 decision, adding their vote was unanimous. “We are an award-winning
 yearbook,” said editor Brian Jaramillo. “We don’t want to diminish the
 quality with something that can be seen as unprofessional.” Spies,
 however, said the editors had previously voted to publish the picture,
 and accused the administration of intimidating them into reversing
 their decision.

A THOUGHT: The picture is hot, but it’s the defiance that’s really beautiful.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
