Robbers crawled through an open window in a Clark Kerr dorm last night, which immediately begs two questions.  One: whose brilliant idea was it to build ground-floor Clark Kerr windows so big and wide that six-footers can just sail right through them?  Two, which in retrospect isn’t so surprising considering point one: dangerous criminal people with guns are targeting dorms now?

Police officials are feeling the shock too.  The four students whose dormitory was broken into were apparently ordered to give up laptops and wallets at gun-point. The assailants left with one of each and have not been apprehended.  None of the students were injured.  We direct our most sincere expressions of gratitude heavenward.

The crime of entering a structure with the intent to steal (or to commit a felony) is called burglary, not robbery. Robbery is a distinct crime, requiring (roughly) the theft of property from a person by use of force or fear.

OK. My pedantic bad. I re-read the whole post. Really was a robbery.
