Seniors: this is your rebuke. Non-seniors: this is your warning. Seniors: this is your rebuke. Non-seniors: this is your warning. This week, the Police Notes reported that “several intoxi- cated students had to be treated by Cincinnati Fire and Rescue at the Winter Ball.” Really, seniors? You have had enough time to season your liv- ers for this night and then this happens? We realize that there were only a handful of you that tried to drink yourselves to death, but that’s still pretty pathetic com- ing from such a veteran group. It wasn’t even like the Twentieth Century Theater had an open bar, which could easily explain unfortunate events such
as the ones from this weekend. No, these students had to actu- ally try to see some members of Cincinnati’s finest. It’s a solid goal if that’s what you’re looking for, but here at the Newswire, we are not really sure if that is the best idea in the world. Xavier: contrary to popular belief, the Newswire is not the fun police (that’s Cleneay’s finest). We’re just trying to ensure that students maintain a minor sem- blance of respectability in their behavior in the community. If only one person had gone off the deep end into the arms of Cincinnati Fire, then this wouldn’t be a huge deal. When one person does some- thing stupid, he/she is an outlier. When several people do the same stupid thing, it’s a little more noticeable. It’s become clear to us that some of our senior compatriots should have done a little more practicing at Dana’s (after they turned 21, of course) before be- ing released into the wild over the weekend. Perhaps this little event shall bring to light the dangers of not knowing your tolerance. Non-seniors: when it becomes your turn to dance the night away, try and not get Fire and Rescue involved.
