A federal judge says the popular "I (heart) boobies!" breast cancer fund raising bracelets aren't lewd or vulgar, so public school students in Pennsylvania can wear them. Judge Mary McLaughlin sided with students in a free speech test case filed by the ACLU. She issued a temporary restraining injunction that bars Easton Area Schools from enforcing a ban on the bracelets. The judge says the bracelets are being worn to promote breast cancer awareness. School district leaders argued the slogan has a double meaning and leads to distractions.
