"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

campus watch is back...

School's back, and so is the absolutely hysterical U.T. police blotter, part of which gets reprinted in the paper every day. The current edition is particularly funny, being as it features all of the significant incidents reported from Saturday's home opener. Here's a sample:
DARRELL K ROYAL TEXAS MEMORIAL STADIUM, 2200 Robert Dedman
Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor: A 19 year old UT student was observed
demonstrating the balance impairments provided by alcohol consumption. That
student stated she was 31 years old and later stated her year of birth was 1931.
The student's further comments indicated she had a desire to relieve her
bladder on the officer. The student provided several false names and dates of
birth. The student was obviously under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to
the point she was a danger to herself and the officer's pants leg. A sober,
responsible friend agreed to take care, custody and control of the aging
student. Occurred on 08/30/08 at 7:39 p.m.

Good land. Now you see what we try to teach during the week.

(Note: I understand that a lot of this stuff is serious business, and so do the U.T. police. But you've gotta have a sense of humor to work that job, and I'm glad they do.)
