Lobster Boy piece slams frats
Did this group of vandals carry a resolution from the InterFraternity Council condemning the exhibit? I assume that the attackers were male. That being the case, apparently this Lobster Boy project was "too much for men" as well. Were they intoxicated? If so, then we can also surmise that Kofmehl is "too much for alcohol consumers." Meanwhile, this silliness really amazes me.
Every year alumni come to campus to re-experience Carnival. Those who park their cars on university property but not within designated parking spaces get tickets. Kofmehl builds a house on school grounds, and he gets a free ride for his fifth year. President Cohon, as he seeks to solve "the university's biggest challenge" of fundraising (p. 22, fall), might consider how ridiculous alumni feel to see the donations they contribute spent on such high-profile foolishness.

The university handed down its judgment on the four students, Aug. 19, limiting their campus activities. Two brought suit. In a compromise decision, the students must enroll in an art class, but they can keep their work-study jobs. They can spend class days on campus and eat on campus. A 240-hour community service requirement will take into account previous service. They cannot attend campus activities or use recreational facilities. They must write a 15-page paper on diversity and make $807 in restitution to William Kofmehl.Editor
Tickets were once free!
