Subject: RE: BS: What should happen to the IL hazers?
Interesting comments, Susan. But I guess when a school has a fine and longstanding tradition of supporting and advocating mental and emotional abuse and degradation as part of the educational system, I have a hard time assuming the problem is all those darn city folks that moved into town.

The problem was there when it was a rural community, it just wasn't as obvious. Maybe the density of population excerbated it. But I don't think raising kids in a rural setting will automatically help them be better people when the adults are sanctioning those kinds of activities.
