Censorship in Nevada

In Las Vegas, Nevada, the valedictorian of Foothill High School Valerie McComb was cut off in mid speech by school authorities. Because she was going to mention the influence of God in her life. This is censorship. Censorship is prior restraint of speech by the government. It's not done after, but before. It cannot be done by a newspaper or other media. It is done by the government. She was speaking her own thoughts. Establsihment of a church was not involved, because she wrote her speech, not the cowardly school bureaucrats. The Las Vegas Review-Journal The school bureaucrats way their position has been upheld by the 9th US Circuit Court. That is basis to conclude they are in error, because the 9th is the Circuit most over turned by the US Supreme Court.
