((A female student's decision to take her girlfriend to the Floyd County High School prom brought cameras to the school that night...and a long letter from a resident, [Dan Snellings, Floyd] criticizing contemporary journalism.
"Except for the initial miscommunication between the student and the school administration, which could have been resolved without the help of the ACLU, there was, and has been nothing to report. But what about the angry citizens of Floyd that could be produced to give credence to this media attention? It is my contention that if you beat the bushes hard enough, and if you use enough inflammatory language, you will be successful in finding people with opinions on controversial issues. Instead of trying to defuse a controversy they help to create, the local news media fanned the flames of discontent while standing gleefully by ready to film whomever it consumed."
Another viewer [Brad Warstler, Floyd] wrote:
"It seems to me that if you were going to do a piece about the same sex couple going to the senior prom at Floyd County High School you would interview people on both sides of the issue rather than just one interview with one narrow-minded county supervisor...There are plenty of folks up here in Floyd who applaud Ms. Lapine for her courage and who have no fear that the free world will collapse if she and her date go to the prom."

So far, this spring has been a confusing season of extremes -- especially in parts of east-central Missouri.
Even though floodwaters there are now beginning to recede, the damage caused won't just disappear with the tide.

Residents in low-lying areas were forced out of their homes ... after more than a foot of rain fell late Saturday night. The torrential downpour swept away cars ... and just about everything else. Firefighters had to be called in to help rescue those trapped by the rising water.
((MOS)) "Oh my God. I thought my life was over. I'm scared of water. I can't swim anyway. So that's what I thought -- my life's over. I thought I was going to die."
Several towns in Oklahoma are also recovering ... after a weekend of flooding forced hundreds of families to evacuate.
For folks living near Des Moines, Iowa -- it's a painful reminder of the fickleness of Mother Nature. Iowa could use some of that rain. They're in the midst of a severe water shortage ... that's hurting both farms and farmers alike.

On the East Coast, residents are wondering "what happened to spring?" Meanwhile, In New York, park goers basked in record-high temperatures.
But those who took a trip to the city's beaches got a chilly reminder that summer's not quite here yet.
