GHS graduate and criminal defense attorney Mickey Sherman has been deemed unfit to address school children because, gasp, he dares to defend under-aged drinkers. I understand the desire to bring children directly from the back of the police car to the execution ground; lots of people feel this way, especially when it’s not their own children involved or when it’s a Taliban meting out justice. And certainly anyone is entitled to be ignorant of our Constitution and history. But that doesn’t mean that educators ought necessarily to agree with such sentiments nor display such a lack of basic knowledge of who this country was founded by (lawyers) and why they felt it important to protect the rights of the accused. The worst part of this sad tale is that my daughter is graduating this spring and I will now have to sit through yet another rendition of “Strive Ever Onward” instead of being entertained by the very funny Mr. Sherman.
