Last week, we shared the story of a Cherokee Trail High School student who managed to sneak the quote "When the red river's a'flowing, take the dirt road home" past a yearbook adviser, but got in trouble after the grownups figured it out. One of our readers not only wasn't offended by the quote, but found it preferable to another common phrase.
