Buttered Up


Amber Dauge says she ran out of the house to meet her school bus while still making a sandwich. When she realized she still had a butter knife, she says, she put it in her book bag and later in her locker at South Carolina's Goose Creek High School. Weeks later, the butter knife fell out of her locker, prompting laughter from some other students. But a teacher who saw the knife wasn't laughing. The teacher told the principle and Dauge was expelled under the school's zero-tolerance policy.
