    Saying no one is special is just as stupid as saying everyone is. But other than that, I don't see what's so controversial about his speech.

    Exactly. There's plenty of special people in high school. They get to ride in a special little bus and everything.

    God, I love it when teachers piss all over what parents and 80% of what schools and youth sports teams say nowadays. I was let go because I wasn't all sunshine and flowers with my last team...It was the first time I have ever been let go because I was trying to make the team "too competitive". I laughed at them while they fired me when they said that.
    Bra-fucking-vo!!!!
