so yesterday morning, somebody (or bodies) cast firaga on the football stadium at Willamette.

Whoever did it knew what they were doing. apparently it happened around 10:30 and it didn't take long for it to burn completely to the ground. The administration is puzzled as to why the perps decided to do it during the day, and are hoping that someone in one of the houses close to the stadium saw something.

The band director told me that in the past seven or so years that he's been there, there have been a few incidents of arson at the school, and all of the previous offenders got caught. Memory of my high school days are fuzzy, but i don't think we ever had a case of arson while i was there, both middle school and high school. Part of it might have been the time, part of it might have been that our student body was made of different stuff than Willamette.

Then again, i came from the high school where some decade or two earlier they had a principal who used to run naked in the school at night and try to take the letters of the high school motto off of the wall, and eventually murdered an english teacher and her kid. something like that anyway.

*yawn* i should really go back to sleep, but i probably won't in favor of trying to get some work done. yum.

edit: It made [front page news] (some kind of cookie) in our paper.

Jay Smith... principal of Upper Merion Area High school in the 70's. Man, what a frigging trip. He also used to make announcements over the PA system that said things like: (according to one of the 4 or 5 books and the movie about the event)

“This is your principal speaking,” a syrupy-voiced Jay Smith began in one such message. “There is a new regulation for gym clothes. You may wear yellow bottoms and blue tops. Or you may wear blue bottoms and yellow tops. I trust that this will please authoritarians in the faculty and not displease libertarians. But I have one caveat: In the winter it shall be the duty of each and every student to be encased in warm underwear.”

And don't forget the Caleb Farley (Fairly?) thing of a few years ago too...

man...we came from a MESSED up town...

Re: lol...
yeah, but according to mr. scutta and vince valaitis when we asked them about the movie, some of the stuff was exaggerated for the movie drama.
