In other interesting news...

I really wish my school would quit getting national attention over such negative things. Out of all the good things that happens on campus and the good things the college does, the two events that caught national attention has to be the president resigning over inconsistencies in his resume and now the retarded actions of a student that I knew.

This has to be the most horirble thing to happen for awhile though, I recalled hearing about some of it last week. Apparently, they had adopted the dog from the humane society and were having problems with it. So, being the socially responsible people they are (3 others were in the car), they decided that rather than going through the trouble of taking the dog back, it would be better to throw it off the bridge instead.

How inhumane! :mad:

The President of a Quincy University Fraternity is now charged with felony animal abuse. The accusation is that the President of Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity threw a dog to its death from the Bayview Bridge late last Thursday night or early Friday morning.
That is big enough to be on the news. What a jerk too. :(

"The investigation done by the Quincy Police Department indicates the dog was thrown from the bridge at mid point and certainly a logical conclusion is the dog is deceased."
<sarcasm> REALLY? I don't think so...better do another investigation. :D </sarcasm>
