Three cheers to the Olentangy Liberty High School student newspaper The Cannon on their latest edition. The paper used the power of satire to make a point on the recent controversy over articles published in the student papers at Liberty and Olentangy High Schools.
Hats off to the students, the faculty advisor, and the school administration for the courage to allow The Cannon to make a statement with satire. It really is about giving students the opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills -- and this was a great demonstration of what can happen if you allow it unfold.
And just for the heck of it, here's another great example from The Onion on one my favorite public radio shows.
