Bomb threats from an on campus (Sodexo) employee, more random bullets found, armed robbery parking in the m2 deck (which was suppoused to be torn down 10 years ago and is falling apart but who cares about student safety).

... so in other words: a typical week at good ol' Youngstown State!

One of my favorite things at YSU is when we are forced to buy custom edition books, usually written by one of the professors, then can't sell them back to the bookstore because they're not being used again or are overstocked. Screw YSU. I used to love the campus but no longer can.

This not a newspaper,it is a liberal; rag, that no on could possibly take seriously w/o giving some thought to what the real story is. One sided reporting with no investigation of what really happened or reporting all of the facts known.

What kind of newspaper protects the perp by not even giving a description?

The Vindy didn't give a full description because they probably don't want to offend anyone since EVERYTHING these days turns into a race issue. Blacks need to realize that sometimes the truth hurts and just deal with it. I can't stand liberal rags like the VIndy that compromise the truth in favor of political correctness. It's really sad what this country has become.
