A violent, disturbing story written by a student leads to the student being expelled. The student complains that he was inspired by a reading assignment from the class, so the teacher who assigned it gets the boot. And in fact, the whole issue gets turned over to the authorities- and ends up on the SFPD Homicide Division. There was never a homicide!
And again, we have people hyperventilating and overreacting, all sound and fury, signifying... nothing. A young writer with a predeliction to slasher flicks writes a slasher story. A really icky one at that. People do that. ::sigh::
