    "Why did I have a lighter if there is such great national security?"

    Someone should tell her it's been almost 8 years since cigarette lighters were banned on airplanes.

    Geez - do you guys have alerts set up for any negative stories about Penn State? :) They're certainly making it easy on you. Reading the comments, it looks like they just had Bill Ayers appear at an on-campus panel discussion.

    And thanks for the pics, dq! Maybe the "Pics or GTFO" crowd will think twice from now on.

    Uh, oh. Sounds like there might need to be either a Danceathon or a game against Nebraska to start the healing process.

    No, one more bad story and we're going to have to play Pitt at something. Easier to win and a lot more satisfying.

    Pics or gtfo is for teachers only. Not for these menopause-approaching, batshit crazy nags.
