Do your homework!
OK, so for those who called or emailed to check and make sure I was ok, I obviously am, thank you very much. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about...SOMEone at St. Ed's decided it would be a good idea to call in a bomb threat on Tuesday. And then again Wednesday. And then again Thursday. My theory is that since it's finals time that someone didn't study for a test or write a final paper in time. Maybe they were freaked out and wanted to see what St. Ed's would do (in lieu of recent tragic events that is). Or maybe it's some immature kid who wants attention or has a bad sense of humor. Whatever the reason was, hopefully they know that it wasn't appreciated. St. Ed's did a good deal of security - closing the campus on Tuesday to check and even having police at campus entrances to not let any non-residential people on. Tuesday they checked it again, Wednesday they checked it again, etc. So my wonder is who this person is. I mean, since such big things just happened at VT I know that security is on every one's mind and the FBI happens to be involved. There was an email to all students saying this so if the person is a student I KNOW they know that. And which student thinks that the FBI isn't going to figure out their little prank? They kept doing it though so they deserve to get caught and kicked out of school, etc. etc. And it makes me a teensy bit scared because while it IS a prank, it isn't funny given that 32 people just got killed a few weeks after some bomb threats, and if someone is sick enough to think it's fun to do this now, are they sick enough to go el-bezerko on a campus of unsuspecting kids? Not to be all dramatic, but in my class on Thursday I really was trying to figure out what to do if someone came through the door with a gun since I sit smack dab in the front row, right in front of the door. And my class is on the second floor so looking at the window and wondering what frame of mind those kids were in to be jumping out of their building...I know it saved their lives but I can't imagine doing that. Long story short - I'm very annoyed at someone and I don't know who it is, but I hope they know that they aren't very cool.
