    Heck, for my 16th birthday, I burned a cross on my neighbors front lawn.

    I do remember punching a bully in the nose and breaking it. Not all bookworms are easy marks.

    There’s still a bully out there I wouldn’t mind bumping into.

    I am more concerned about all the people he hurt while looting companies.

    Let’s not drag this out or anything…

    Even Roland knows how to call this one.

    We’re getting a little far afield here. If everybody’s pranks and shenanigans of youth were laid bare, none of us could pass muster.

    Doesn’t the teenage hair-cutting prank – if it really happened – pale in comparison to the adult frat hazing that is an entrenched institution at major universities? How many elected officials and Federal appointees are fraternity members?

    As Hamlet says ‘If we were all used as we deserved, there’s none would ‘scape whipping’.

    Yes but Hamlet go a lot of things wrong.

    “…If everybody’s pranks and shenanigans of youth were laid bare, none of us could pass muster”
    No, I’m not perfect but by the time I was in High School, I had developed a moral compass that would have prevented me from leading a gang to attach a single individual just because he was different in a way I did not approve. This event speaks volumes about Romney if it wasn’t already clear what he uses for a compass.

    “… if it really happened…”
    Don’t let facts get in the way of your opinions.
    And, as questionable as frat/sorority hazing is, the “victims” are there voluntarily. Still, if it takes the form it did in this incident, it should be treated the same.

    Romney is keeping this alive himself by refusing to admit that it happened. If he had said, “Yes, I did it. But, it was wrong and I am sorry,” the whole thing would have blown over. His inability to admit what he did is at the centre of these strips.

    Gosh, that Barry was receiving foreign student aid when he was 18 pales against Mitt’s gay bashing….

    I’ll say something in defense of Mitt: they didn’t have the term “hate crimes” back then. Having said that, the way he speaks of that particular act today is one of the most troubling aspects of it.
