The traditional commencement act-of-defiance stunt goes badly awry:

RUSSELL SPRINGS, Ky. (AP) - The senior class at a southern Kentucky high school gave their response Friday night to a federal judge's order banning prayer at commencement.

About 200 seniors stood during the principal's opening remarks and began reciting the Lord's Prayer, prompting a standing ovation from a standing-room only crowd at the Russell County High School gymnasium.

That's not the story the media came to cover. Seniors are meant to misbehave as instructed. Didn't they read the script?
