Ohio University Nation's Top Riot School

The headline for this blog could have been worse.  Much worse.  I'm sure thinking worse. 

I'm also thinking: "I'm paying nearly $20,000 a year for this?"  This O.U. dad has had it.

This is my third piece on Palmer Fest. It's my last.  My disdain for the [INSERT NAME HERE] fests at O.U. is now firmly established.
On May 8-9, 2010, according to reports, 104 people were arrested, including 45 Ohio University students.
Add these: Tear gas. Injuries. Riot police.
For at least the second year in a row, beer bottles were thrown at police.  One police officer was injured this year.
Come on, O.U., its past time to do something about this.
The reputation for being a party school is now a thing of the past.  Sadly, consider your school the nation's top riot school now.
