4. This is really strange to me on a number of levels

The first is that my father was the Principle of Canencro High School many years ago. Seeing that school and its principle in an article presented on DU comes as a bit of a shock.

The second, Lafayette is the heart of Cajun country in Louisiana. While I haven't made Louisiana my home in many years, I was born, reared and went to college in Lafayette and that part of Cajun Louisiana (no contrary to popular believe the entire state isn't Cajun) was never particularly known for it prudishness. Now if this incident had occurred in any number of small towns in Northern Louisiana where most people are not any different from those populating rural areas in the states of Mississippi or Alabama, I wouldn't thought it was odd at all.

Cajuns are are normally tolerant people. Then again, the principle is named Qualey and the School System chief administrative officer is named Craig (not Cajun family names) so maybe they are transplants from elsewhere in the prudish South. My father damn sure wouldn't have kept the girl from attending the prom in that dress.
