Obama shut out in Fayetteville UPDATE

Posted By on Sun, Sep 6, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Add the Fayetteville School District -- Fayetteville! -- to the school districts pointedly making it clear they will not subject impressionable school children to a speech by the leader of the free world.

The decision to NOT -- repeat NOT -- broadcast the speech by President Obama is strictly a matter of logistics, a spokesman assures. It has nothing to do with a coming hotly controversial vote on a tax increase to pay for a very expensive new high school.

UPDATE: Episcopal Collegiate won't be showing the president either. Some parents were concerned apparently.
