Bloomy blasts diploma 'bozo'
New York Daily News: "The 'bozo' who withheld a diploma from a Brooklyn valedictorian after the teen publicly slammed her high school made a grade-A goof, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday.

'What bozo tried to hold back a diploma in a country where freedom of speech is so prized? I don't know,' Bloomberg fumed.

'Fortunately, the chancellor, when he heard about it, overruled it,' the mayor said. 'They should have given her a diploma. C'mon, let's get on with it.'

High School of Legal Studies valedictorian Tiffany Schley was refused her diploma Friday after she painted a blistering picture of what was wrong with the Bushwick school in her graduation speech.
