The future students of Corner Canyon High recently got a first-hand lesson in how our government works when they selected a mascot. First, they gather public input on the issue, then narrow the options based on the input. Next, they may even allow a vote on the options.

After votes are tallied, they compare that to their own agenda and do just whatever it was they had planned in the first place — often rationalizing their actions through some bizarre and obscure connection to their reasoning which has no resemblance to the public opinions.
