Plum Loco

Wylie Independent School District says Junior Lakia Watkin’s new hairdo violates the school’s dress code. Her hair is dyed a plum color. The school says students’ hair must be a color that can be grown naturally. But (cue technicality-pointing-out lawyer) are plums not “natural”? Ergo, would it not be the case that plums — and their color — are “natural”?

    I noticed on the TV news report that the spokeswoman for the school had unaturally-dyed hair.

    Would be so awesome if true. Of course they’d issue a bunch of BS that she’s not a student and doesn’t have to adhere to said policy. And if you see the girl’s photo, the hair is hardly distracting. It’s barely even noticeable.
