Reason for the Season

Officials at Kentucky's W.R. Castle Elementary School censored a performance of A Charlie Brown Christmas by students. They deleted the scene in which Linus quotes from the Bible, a scene that Charles Schulz was adamant be included in the original TV special. However, at the point where that scene normally occurs, several audience members recited the lines. Principal Jeff Cochran said he was disappointed with their actions.

    Cochran, the principal, indicated he wasn’t satisfied with the audience response.

    “I wish that they had let the kids do the play,” he said.

    Sounds like they had the same wish for you.
