Last night for our reader across america celebration my 4-6th graders put on a skit 
for k-1 kids and their families.  It did not go well for reason I will not bore you 
with but one comment my principal made was in the selection for Qwerty stevens, 
Edison Mystery by Dan Gutman Barbara who suddenly appears before Edison Muckers and 
is hooted at says "Stop it you sexist pigs" I for the sake of the skit dropped 
sexist but my boss didn't think it was "g" rated enough because he objected to the 
word pigs.

Now he wants to screen every skit I do.  I am not comfortable with this.  This is 
the first disagreement about appropriate subject matter we've had in 5 years.

I did not object when he said this because I want to respond thoughtfully.  I've 
thought of supplying him with the skit's script, the original passage and reviews 
of the book but I could use any ideas you might have.

Any suggestions?
