No, Really, Prof. I Was Out Dancing Naked Under The Full Moon. I Couldn't Study.

The recent decision by Marshall University in West Virginia in West Virginia to allow Pagan students the same right to miss class for religious holidays as students from other religions have long enjoyed continues to generate comments.

Here, a student from another college responds to the news.

Here, a reader in West Virginia responds to a recent article in the local paper about the new policy:

Cheers to Marshall University for protecting pagan students’ right to celebrate their holidays. Jeers to the Gazette for trying to create a furor where none is needed. Your headline “Marshall policy now observes pagan holidays” is misleading. Marshall University is not observing pagan holidays. It is merely recognizing that they exist, and are as important to some students as Christmas or Hanukkah are to other students.

Wouldn't it be nice if people could fucking learn to capitalize "Pagan"?

And I thought capitalised Pagan was a place in Myanmar with lots of cool temples.
