"Where were you when Brandon and Steve organized an angry mob?"

Do you know what is on tv right this very moment? One of the very best episodes of Beverly Hills 90210. Donna is tearily appealing to the West Beverly school board while her classmates have walked out on their final exams and are, in the words of Brenda and Brandon's dad, staging a "revolution" outside the meeting, waving signs and chanting "Donna Martin graduates!"

The sense of community is perhaps commendable but everyone knows you're not supposed to get caught drinking at prom because late-in-senior-year drama is much anticipated and has to be satisfied. Cow-eyed, sheep-voiced Donna was an easy target.

My high school's drama was a sophomore who got caught smoking off campus at night and was threatened to get kicked out of the spring musical. Thanks to a crafty, sensible, and on-our-side principal, she missed one performance out of three, based on the reasoning that the three-week punishment would make an athlete miss about a third of a season. Thank you Mr. Sabatino, wherever you are. You were too good for our state-college-yet-eerily-Republican town.

Oh goody, hear comes Andrea in her double-breasted blazer to speak on behalf of the class. "Suspend Donna; suspend us all."

And now there's an extra wearing acid-washed paper-bag waist denim shorts with white sneakers and scrunch socks. Some of those LA kids were looking mighty stupid in 1993.

A board member has proposed that Donna can graduate as long as she goes to alcohol counseling over the summer. And the vote.... Nay. Aye. [Donna looks nervous.] Aye. Nay. [Breathless anticipation.] Aye. Yahoo! Hugs! High fives! Wild applause!

Genius. Free Peach Pit pie for everyone!

I rambled about other stuff too. Wanna see?
