Michael Sheridan, an eighth-grade honors student who was suspended for a day, barred from attending an honors dinner and stripped of his title as class vice president after he was caught with a bag of Skittles candy in school will get his student council post back, school officials said.

Michael was disciplined after he was caught buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate. The classmate’s suspension also will be expunged, school officials said.
As an aside, I have a tip just for you. Please don’t read these kinds of articles while you’re reading Jonah Goldberg’s best seller, Liberal Fascism, as I am now. The combination will drive you nutz when you see things from within an historical context.
