Good men and the Pitt bomb threats

The Good Men Project has covered the Pitt bomb threats in two articles.  The first:

 See, of all the possible ways that the world could end, this is one of them.  It’s surely among the most effective:  by taking the level of extreme comfort that we soft, insulated denizens of the First World have come to expect–this assumed “freedom from fear“–and subverting it, our weakness is completely exposed.

And the second:

Pitt’s endowment is in the billions of dollars and its community is in the tens of thousands, yet it has been rendered impotent by threatening notes scrawled on bathroom stalls and untraceable emails warning of imminent disaster.

Go check them both out, they are both long, but worthwhile reads, from Pitt graduate students writing for the GMP.

100th anniversary chocolate

At the 61st annual Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner last night, Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg and Admiral Jay Cohen spoke to a crowd of over 600, including the 344 Eagle Scouts of the 2010 class.

Also, we got cake and chocolate that celebrated Scouting’s 100th anniversary.  Pretty cool (and tasty).
