An example of pure meanness

It's a little hard to be optimistic theses days.  First, it was the school that canceled its prom rather than allow Constance McMillen (left)  to bring her female date.  Then it was the racist and homophobic slurs yelled at our members of Congress.  Then it was the man with Parkinson's who was berated by some members of the Tea Bag Movement.  (See video post below.)

Now it's a follow up to the Mississippi prom.   According to She Wired:
....her classmates and their parents in her Mississippi town have left her off of the invite to a substitute prom that will be held at a furniture mart in nearby Tupelo, according to the Clarion Ledger.

As the prom being held at the "furniture mart" is a private event --albeit a tacky one -- excluding McMillen is not a constitutional issue, according Benjamin Griffith, the school board attorney.
 How can these people live with themselves?
