"Three laptop computers and two iPods were found missing from dorm rooms in Oliver Hall Sunday night."

found missing? Seems like an odd way to put it.

Found missing? How can you FIND something that's missing MISSING? Do you need an English tutor?

I think the judge should go Taliban on them and cut their hands off... or at least send the idiot thieves to Iraq and make them steal weapons from terrorists. That'll learn 'em. That'll learn 'em real good.

if we remove their hands...they can't type...can't type means they can't use a computer...can't use a computer means can't work...can't work means on the gov't dole...on the gov't dole means they win. no, I say, lock them in a room and apply some of what's being called "torture," like the Red Hot Chili peppers loud for several hours a day. or, what we did for the panamanian dictator: linda rhonstadt! that'll teach 'em and they can go and be productive citizens.

When will folks learn: A life of crime is MUCH more work than a "legitimate" life. Seriously, how much time and money will this stunt cost our knuckleheaded bretheren from the south? Much more than the couple of hundred they could have gotten from a fence. Oh, I mean pawn broker...oh no I meant fence.

It is always "missing" until you find it in the last place you looked---even if it was in another city?

Actually, Mr. DeAllie was cleared of all charges. His only mistake was hanging out with Cameron. Wrong place at the wrong time you now?
