This article about the fate of SafeRide was pretty interesting. Firstly, they’re just now realizing that it’s “ineffective, unorganized and is rarely if at all used by the student body”? DUH. I never even used it and I could’ve told them that. I think the accidents on Edison point out, though, that something needs to be done about students walking back to campus from the bars. And I don’t like the attitude some administrators are taking, like Father Paul Doyle, rector of Dillon: “It’s some kind of enticement to be irresponsible and not have to worry about how you’re getting home â€” I don’t think that’s productive to growing up.” “Productive to growing up?” How about getting hit by a car? That’s not really “productive for growing up” either, is it? Sheesh.
Another student got hit by a car on Edison? This time it was an RA from Dillon, and again, the driver of the car was drunk. Luckily it looks like the student’s going to make a full recovery. I wonder what the University’s going to do about this though? Will they finally shut down The Backer?
Holy cow! There’s an Anderson Cooper Fan Club website! Remember him? He was the flannel-shirt-wearing reporter from Channel 1 who was always dodging bullets in Bosnia while Rawley sat on his ass in the “Hacienda”. As a joke, me and some friends wrote Anderson an obsessive fan letter once. We didn’t send it though. I swear.
