Well the snow day phone kerfuffle seems to be more or less done. WaPo is reporting that teen Devraj Kori will serve a Saturday detention for his crimes. Their headline unfortunately states “Fairfax Teen Will Serve Detention for Snow Day Call” which I would certainly hope is not the case – I continue to think there’s no sanctionable action in making a polite phone call to a listed phone number. However a day in detention on the weekend seems quite even-handed as a punishment for posting their home phone and encouraging – either explicitly or by implication – others to call and be obnoxious.
The article says that – as Joe noticed in the comments – the recording is gone from YouTube now, but the two voice links over on this post still seem to work fine. I only mention this since I still think Candy Tistadt should be fired for her part of the transgression and I wouldn’t want to make that assertion without proof.
