Spring also means that the very spendy private college up the street is getting ready to fold up the circus tents for another year:
Six Macalester students were arrested and charged with obstructing the legal process with force after police say a Senior Week gathering of more than 100 students turned rowdy, but now students are questioning police officers' use of force during the incident. St. Paul Police were called about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday to assist the college's security because 150 students were reportedly causing a disturbance.
It's such a drag to go home to mummy and daddy in Palo Alto, Schaumberg, Maui, or wherever they come from, I can imagine they believe they have the right to blow off. Those mean Saint Paul coppers; always harassing the Social Justice majors.
During intermission of a play tonight, I was reading the actual newsprint edition of The Onion, which, like The Simpsons, never seems to go bad. One article reminded me of the kind of self-riotousness, self-esteem and hubris-fortification that are core curricula at that joint.
Off to the sack. One beer is enough. Plus, there be pay-per-view tomorrow morning! Arsenal vs. Man U; it's almost too bad someone has to win.
