High school tweeter Emma Sullivan, citing free speech and Ghandi, will defy her high school principal and not apologize to Governor Sam Brownback for the supposedly hurtful things she twittered to her (then-60) Twitter followers, implying she spoke back harshly to the governor, called him out publicly for his views, and suggested he blows — a lot.

None of which, we suppose, is true. Or (until the governor’s director of communications demanded an apology) widely known — whether true or not.
