Check out the NDPD Police Blotter for August. Okay, so most of the things on there are actual crimes… but check out the “larceny” that occurred on 8/9/00. Apparently somebody at the Joyce Center reported that “two pairs of sunglasses and a pair of scissors” were stolen from their desk. At 11:30 in the morning. Does this strike you as a little, uh, dumb? Like our police force – even Rent-a-Cops, which they are – don’t have anything better to do than look for missing sunglasses and scissors??

An ESPN columnist points out how ridiculous it is that one play (Michigan State’s 4th-and-10 gamewinner) changes our rating so much. There’s also a great quote from Lou about his new team: “I told this team they could play with any team in the country. I just haven’t figured out WHAT country yet.”
In case you haven’t heard, the Administration is trying to take away the Observer’s “independent status.” Why? Because they cover issues (i.e. GLND/SMC) that the school disagrees with. Some people think this is bad. I find it so idiotically bad that I can’t even begin to describe it.
WEASEL FOOTBALL REPORT: We are 1-0-1 so far this year! Check out this article in the Observer: “Purple Weasels take on Shamrocks in enemy territory”. Our team kicks so much ass. And a defensive linewoman broke her nose in the Farley game last week! Weasels are so tough. You make us proud girls!
