    Red & Black reporters arrested ...

    Why is this a story? Because they wish they were as high profile as the football players whose arrests the paper writes about? Weak.

    The proverbial rock and a hard place. If you don't run it, you open yourself to criticism that you're protecting your own.

    There's this thing called a police blotter, and from what I read, that's where this belongs. It's not news.

    Looks like these guys ran afoul of the student paper's editor in chief.

    I don't suspect the Red & Black has a police blotter, so I think a short item like this is fine.

    I like that Smart Mop commercial that comes on TV late at night, especially when he puts it in the water bucket then holds it over his head and says "Best part? No Drip"s.

    Wow. That's profound. Late at night, I'm usually getting my rest next to someone very warm a cuddly who loves me back while you are watching TV commercials. You must really love electronic devices.

    How do they have a police reporter then? Unless they're a fan of titles, it seems silly to identify someone as a "police reporter" unless that is their regular beat.
