Friday, March 13 “Ode to a Craigslist Date” (based on an actual crime) Craig hooked us up The internet, it’s great We met up at a frat You looked like jail bait Things were going well the beer lines weren’t long Until we went to my room And I went to the john

I came back all excited Not wanting to be apart Until I realized you had bounced With my Macbook and heart Sunday, March 29

An incredibly tense situation unfolded at 12:25 a.m. on Sunset Road after Tufts Police received a call about a loud party. Police from both Tufts and Somerville rushed to the epicenter of the cacophony. They asked the residents to please turn down the music. The residents complied. Fortunately, no police negotiators were required.

A curious case of “Who Dunnit” arose in Anderson hall on March 23 around 12:31 p.m. when three pairs of InTech glasses were stolen from a room that is only accessible via authorized card access. The glasses, which were likely not as fresh as a pair of Versace or Dolce & Gabbana, were valued at $525 a pair. It has been suggested that at least one person who currently has card access gets their privilege revoked. Friday, March 27 Between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. a student, clearly wishing to empirically test the laws that govern our society, left her purse unattended in Carmichael dining hall. As was to be expected, it was taken. Unfortunately for the experiment, the researcher did not see who took the purse. Saturday, March 28

In a follow-up study, another student decided to set her bag out in Carmichael Dining hall. Her results differed slightly from previous ndings in that only a wallet was taken from the bag. Statistical tests have yet to be run to discern if this is a signicant nding.
