It's a rite of springtime, apparently. The University of Connecticut... the pride of our state... the vanguard of our achievement in higher education... erupts with drunken, semi-retarded, vomiting teenagers.
It's apparently a time to put down your books and relax by pushing a urine-soaked community room couch out the dorm window and into a bonfire. It's time to celebrate, to expose yourself, blackout for four hours and wake up testing positive for chlamydia.
It always gives me great pride to read the papers and review the arrest stories and then consider the taxpayer investment that goes into providing this opportunity to the future generation.
The Courant reports today on the weekend's proceedings where 51 students and non-students were arrested:
The arrests were made for a variety of charges including narcotics offenses,
underage possession of alcohol, forgery, criminal impersonation, interfering
with police, breach of peace, driving under the influence and weapons offenses.
That's quite an assortment of interesting charges.
Hard to imagine with this resume of debauchery UCONN still isn't the home to the Kennedy School of Government. Go Huskies!
