Re: You gotta be kidding?!?!?!?!
Not kidding. Schools around here are trying to bring some honor back to the ceremony. Bunch of rednecks and hicks yell, whistle, clap, stomp, etc. If you go to watch your child graduate, you want to hear your child's name when called. If the folks there are clapping, yelling, etc., you aren't going to hear it.
The school system hasn't said don't make noise. They said don't make noise DURING the ceremony. Make all the noise you want AFTER the graduating class has been presented.
Several people got to go to the Iron Door Hotel. They knew what would happen. They were told no less than six times to hold their applause until the end. They chose not to.
