When I learned yesterday that several buildings at Harvard University had been evacuated, a colleague quipped it was probably some kid trying to get out of final exams.
Well, that’s exactly what it turned out to be.
Needless to say it was an exceedingly stupid thing to do. All the more so when you consider it was scarcely eight months ago that two bombs were detonated just across the Charles River in an act of Islamic terrorism which resulted in three deaths and hundreds being injured.
It just goes to show that Harvard men might be smart, but it doesn’t mean they’re very bright.
