(Newser) – Bad: A Muslim high school student in Houston faced bad jokes and teasing over Osama bin Laden's death to the point where she began crying. Worse: The jokes came from her algebra teacher, reports KTRK-TV. "I bet you're grieving," the teacher told the girl Monday in front of the class. When she asked why, he said he had heard about her uncle's death. Clear Brook High School officials were so impressed with his quick wit, they placed him on administrative leave pending an investigation.
