Read about the full story in the Herald on Thursday.

    I would’ve hoped the Herald would know when tongue-in-cheek isn’t appropriate. This kid is some very serious trouble. Have some class, for heaven’s sake.

    I get that this blog is the snarkier, less formal cousin of the BDH, but I agree with the above that it seems weird to write a story in this tone about an alumnus who is facing criminal charges that will most likely lead to several years of jail time.
