NYT Editorializes for Same-Sex Prom Dates

Interesting that the stories we've been following of same-sex couples trying to go to prom like anyone else, have made the New York Times editorial page.  In a piece "Right of Passage" this morning they write:

A Mississippi school board was grossly discriminatory and mean-spirited when it told Constance McMillen that she could not attend her high school prom with her girlfriend. A ruling by a federal judge that Ms. McMillen’s constitutional rights had been violated is a welcome sign that gay people are continuing to make progress toward equality. It should also be a warning to school districts nationwide about the cost of discrimination.
