    Oh yeah, there’s a very popular “Peace Psychology” course at my CC. It’s kinda new agey.

    Colorado U just lost a case prohibiting the (legal) carrying of guns on campus. What they were doing about illegal guns has not be explained.

    After the VaTech shooting, it was suspected that one of the kids, a ROTC cadet, was trying to jump the gunman. That was a forensic conclusion after looking at his wounds and the position of his body. Lucky the kid wasn’t armed, or somebody might have been hurt.

  3. I guess they have a lot of things to study outside of core academics.

    It is good to know that our Community Colleges are busy preparing their students for the jobs of today and the future.
