Oh no ...

Yesterday OSU beat NW. Goody. Next weekend the Michigan game is home and that's great - if you don't live in the University District.

This fine young lad, while not typical of most OSU students, represents an unfortunately large subpopulation of students who will be getting primed next weekend prior to the 3:30 kickoff. So, what can we expect next Saturday evening?
  • Urination on our lawn.
  • A variety of good domestic beer containers (empty), distributed on my lawn.
  • Maybe a few burned sofas in the alleys near my home.
  • An assault or two by fine young men like this one (this actually happened to me while sitting on my porch with my then 12 month old daughter a couple years ago by a drunken sot; his girlfriend pulled him away after he barfed on my lawn).
  • A reprimand and possible suspension by the zero-tolerance Holbrook administration if any of these guys commit murder, assault, rape, etc.,.
Better take down the "For Sale" sign that evening lest it be used as a weapon.

I enjoy living amidst the students, but ever since OSU has become really good at football, the celebrations before and after the game have become ugly.

And we're scared.

This is happening all over the country in a lot of places. there's a new paradigm among students, an overwhelming disrespect for the personal property of others and a sense of entitlement that they should be able to do whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it.

If the children are our future then we're in deep trouble.

Hey Jon,

If this guy's our future, we are in deep trouble indeed.
