Top Cutlines — 1/25/06

Michael Coviello, a senior at Hasbrouck Heights High School, in Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., can now wear a kilt and skirt to school after the American Civil Liberties Union reached an agreement with school officials here. You write the cutline. (AP Photo/The Bergen Record, Tariq Zehawi)

Top Cutlines:

1. Though allowed to wear the kilt Michael was made to wear it below the knees to avoid unwanted displays of his short comings — Dave Tolle.

2. Never willing to skirt an issue, the ACLU didn’t want the student’s civil liberties kilt — John Austin.

3. A Mr. America wannabe made the mistake of eating his french fries and ranch dip before the pageant instead of afterwards Jane Q. Citizen; and: This just in: schools do not have the power to prevent their students from committing a fashion faux pas — A Token D.

HM: BNR, CoeurGENX, whatever, Granati, et al. (Everyone take a bow today.)
