An 18-year-old University of South Florida student and her friend were removed from a Southwest Airlines plane after they claimed flight attendants were rude to them for being too pretty. The girls were escorted off by four uniformed police officers, questioned by the FBI and eventually released and banned from flying on Southwest. Yes, the same Southwest Airlines who kicked this woman off a flight for dressing too skimpy last September.
One School Sticks By Kelvin Sampson
He may be poison in the eyes of Indiana and Oklahoma administrators, but the fine folks at Montana Tech -- where Kelvin Sampson coached from 1981-85 -- is sticking by their old coach and is ready to offer Sampson a job if he wants. Did we mention the Orediggers (yes, that's the name of Montana Tech's team) play on Kelvin Sampson Court?

Oaksterdam University, a trade school in Oakland, is teaching students "how to cultivate and cook with cannabis, study which strains of pot are best for certain ailments, and [instructing them] in the legalities of a business that is against the law in the eyes of the federal government."

Yesterday, it was announced that SMU was chosen as the future home of the George W. Bush Presidential Center. Even more impressive, we checked Wikipedia's list of SMU's notable alumni and discovered the school is the alma mater of Brian Baumgartner, the drummer and lead singer of Scrantonicity Two.
