Lessons Learned

Second semester freshman year at Ball State I worked the front desk of a girl's dorm.

One Friday night about 1:00 a.m. a group of campus police stormed out of the elevator and up the stairs. About 45 minutes later a big guy - very big- was being escorted in out handcuffs.

Later I found out a girl I knew had been raped. She was gone for about a week then showed back up at school.

Two months later except earlier in the night - the same damn thing. Same girl - different guy lead away in handcuffs.

Although I didn't witness the third incident, it occurred. Other girls on the floor told me - us - that when the cops showed up all the other girls defended the guy. Nice of them.

This girl apparently liked to get drunk, fool around, pass out then ...well...panic if something was going on or had gone on.

I will tell my daughters this story. Is it right? No. Ann Coulter, not sounding too rabid, addresses it here; the Journal blames feminism here.

No, it's not right, but if you invite guys to your room late at night after drinking, expect to encounter some things you don't like. Conversely, if you go home with a drunk crazy chick, expect to get called a rapist - or worse - or to met her boyfriend..or dad..or brother.

No, it isn't right, but I don't feel sorry for either one of them. If you put yourself in harms way, chances are you'll get hit.

I could care less about the Lacrosse team - rich, drunk, and stupid - or some dumb stoned stripper or dead blondes in the Carribean on vacation.

Stay You.
