Justice Thomas's "Bong Hits" Concurrence

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's concurrence to the Court's recent decision on Morse v. Frederick ("Bong Hits") is an interesting examination of the history of public schools in the U.S. He makes a good case that the Supreme Court's 1969 Tinker decision has essentially served to "surrender control of the American public school system to public school students" (Tinker, Black, J., dissenting).

Thanks to WSJ's Daniel Henniger for pointing this one out in his opinion piece here.
