    Dr. Olsen,

    Just wondering, but why are all these admitted dope smokers not sitting in the DC Jail? What is your standard for submitting incidents to student conduct vs. MPD?

    @ Thinkin’ out loud,

    Yes, with the neighborhood experiencing a spike in robberies, muggings, and one special case of a home invasion, I think Metro’s time would be best spent dealing with paperwork on a crew of recreational marijuana users. Given your strange priorities, my bet is that you’re a neighbor. Also, your use of the phrase “dope smokers” suggests that you’re at least 45 years old.

    @Tim: I’m 45 and I say “pot.” My father used to say “dope.” I think Thinkin’ out Loud IS a dope. I also think he’s older than 45.

    @ Thinkin’ out loud,

    The cases above involve disciplinary actions still in progress. In another case, a non-student Burleith couple was caught growing marijuana in their backyard, but I haven’t noticed any non-student activists demanding that they move away or be thrown in the DC Jail. If neighborhood activists were as tough on themselves as they are on students, you would have some credibility. Until then, though, you shouldn’t be throwing stones.
