Graduation Limbo

No, that's not some fancy new tropic inspired flexibility lesson...that's what parents like us here at Columbia Talk headquarters find ourselves in as we try to find out when-oh-when Young Man Talk might walk across the stage.

From what we hear this is a yearly dance the HoCo school system goes through with dear old Merriweather, where county schools insist on holding their graduation ceremonies. The folks at the concert pavilion can by contract wait until April 15 to tell the schools when they can share the stage. So parents and out-of-town guests just have to cool their heels.

Which seems odd to us...why keep families in the dark about what arguably should be most important date, the culmination of a student's K-12 career?
