Louisiana Officials Backpedal on Photo Ban

New Orleans Times-Picayune: LHSAA rescinds block of photo sales. Calling the matter a misunderstanding, Louisiana High School Athletic Association Commissioner Tommy Henry on Tuesday rescinded a policy that sought to block newspapers from selling to the public photographs taken at state athletic championships.

No misunderstanding: As noted yesterday, this was a flat-out attempt to monopolize picture-taking at a public sports event. At least the officials are backing off their untenable position.
