Band members at Canyon High School weren't thinking about supporting one political party or another. They were thinking about the more than $4,000 their Anaheim band could get for just a few hours of work, knocking on the doors of Garden Grove Republicans on election day, urging them to go vote.

Giggles. That's what she gets for uttering the F-word. Naturally. Hands on the hips of her faded jeans, her lipsticked smile starting to crack, Lucy Swindell is perched casually at the podium, calling the swim coach " a damn, picky bastard ," making snide comments about the new girl's butt. She saunters around, ticking off a string of forbidden phrases--words that rhyme with "class," "spit," "witch" and, of course, "luck."
