Ninth-grader punished for asking Army pilot sensitive question

`A ninth-grader here has been banned from his school’s assemblies after asking a sensitive question to a U.S. Army pilot.

Phil Sannes also had to apologize to speaker Michael Durant after he asked the “Black Hawk Down” helicopter pilot on Thursday whether he had been raped during his capture by hostile forces in Somalia.

“He asked a fair, hard-balled question,” said Phil’s dad, Jon Sannes. “I don’t know why he’s being punished.” [..]

Durant said it was a good question, but he wouldn’t answer it.’

I think that answer probably counts as a `yes’. 🙂
