There isn’t anything much to report as yet – only that at LSU’s web site there’s an alert bar saying “A bomb threat has been reported on the LSU Campus. Please evacuate as calmy and quickly as possible. Check lsu.edu for updates. LSUEOC”

At the Univeristy of Texas in the ‘70’s, students called in bomb threats when they had a final they weren’t ready for. But it’s not final time.

We’re in a different era.

In the ‘60s and ‘70s bomb threats were seen as almost harmless pranks—in the same league as pulling a fire alarm (I know it’s hard to believe, given the current environment, but it’s true). A student was likely to get a slap on the wrist if caught.

Today, bomb threats are considered deadly serious. A student would not only be expelled, they would likely face criminal prosecution and even jail time.

In other words, I doubt the recent rash of bomb threats is due to students (for any reason—tests or otherwise).
