School officials in Lake City, Arkansas have come up with a novel solution to the fight over prayer at graduation:

The action came soon after the district received a complaint letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation objecting to prayers at previous graduations.
Rather than drop the prayers, the district opted to drop the entire ceremony.
