Yesterday, I told you about a Nebraska student who was told to not read a poem about gay rights on television. Today, I'm pleased to let you know that the story has a happy ending. Margaret Reist at the Lincoln Journal-Star writes:

State speech champion Michael Barth made a tough decision Wednesday — to disregard a request by the Nebraska School Activities Association to change his performance for a NET television show — and then he headed to Lincoln.

Somewhere around North Platte — about 3½ hours southwest of his hometown of Gordon — he found out the NSAA had reversed its decision and would let him perform the poems that had won him a Class C-1 title.

Go read the whole story. This is such great news!
