Seniors Suspended For Booze Tee: Good Lesson or Too Far?

Seniors at a Michigan high school are in hot water over a graduation t-shirt. The shirt reads "Puschin' It To The Limit" on the front (a play on Busch beer) and "Class of .08 Seniors" (the blood-alcohol limit for drivers in Michigan.)

Almost 50 students were suspended for wearing the shirt of which the student body president said, "There was a lot of different ways it could be taken, but I'm pretty sure everyone knows that the message of the shirt related to underage drinking." The students were warned against the sartorial statement ahead of time, but those who ignored the warning will have to earn back the ability to attend prom and graduation.

Since it's the time of year when parents worry most about drinking and driving, was no tolerance of the saucy message the right move?
