Just One More Swirl Around the Bowl

Remember when we used to teach this kind of stuff to our kids when they were five?

Just over a month after College of Arts and Sciences freshman Beatriz Ponce was struck and killed by a car on Memorial Drive, Boston University launched a campaign yesterday aimed at urging students to take caution on Boston's busy streets.

Donned in "use your head, cross on red" shirts, students, faculty and staff volunteers carried "Stop, Look and Listen" signs [you forgot "hold hands" - ed.] and distributed violation cards to unsafe walkers and goody bags to safe ones in yesterday's heavy rain.

"Goody bags"?

I stand corrected. Make that four.
