Are You Kidding Me?

Last week 90 some people were rounded up in a drug raid in San Diego. More than 60 of the culprits were students at San Diego State. One of the students, a criminal justice major, asked one of the arresting officers, “Do you think this will hurt my chances of employment with federal law enforcement?”

Ya think?

Is it today’s cultural influence that causes someone to even ask that question? Or are today’s college students just dumber than they were decades ago? Or was it just this one?

Endowed Bathroom

From the Campus Ministry Update February 2008 by The Ivy Jungle:

 Endowed Bathroom:   A venture capitalist has given $25,000 to the University of Colorado to endow a bathroom.  The lavatory in the business school will have a sign outside it featuring the inspiring quote:   “The best ideas often come at inconvenient times.  Don’t ever close your mind to them.”   (Inside Higher Ed January 29, 2008)

What Was He Thinking?

“I know I did it. I don’t know how I did it, but I know I did it. There was nobody else around,” said Jeffery A. Asbury after he killed his wife in front of the Fox Lake, WI, police station. Full story here.

The shame of it is, “earlier this month, he called his wife 10 to 20 times threatening to kill her, his children and his in-laws.”

This man needs some prayers. And there needs to be a better system of protecting folks who are being threatened. 1The article doesn’t say whether his wife complained to anyone about the harrassment
