Obama will get rid of those records one way or another. I think that would take care of Jarrett’s stuff and Michelle’s, too.

WBZ TV
CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – Harvard University is evacuating four buildings on campus after unconfirmed reports of explosives.

Harvard tweeted this message just after 9 a.m:

Alert: Unconfirmed reports of explosives at four sites on campus: Science Center, Thayer, Sever, and Emerson. Evacuate those buildings now.

The university followed with another tweet saying, “There have been NO reports of explosions.”

Harvard said the buildings were evacuated “out of an abundance of caution,” while the unconfirmed reports were investigated.

Students are still on campus for exams this week, the managing editor of the campus newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, told WBZ-TV.

Whoo boy ... I never thought of that.

IF something happens and no one revolts, we're done.

Better ban explosives or better make college campi explosive-free zones. We cannot stand by and do nothing. Call your congressman and organize a candlelight vigil.

Actually, the average grade at Harvard is an A-. So finals are irrelevant.

See http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/12/average_grade_at_harvard_is_a-_comments.html

From what I read, Harvard suffers from severe grade inflation with the great majority of grades being “A”.

Obama’s Weather Underground buddies did once plan to blow up one of the libraries at Columbia University here in New York City (and also launch an attack on Fort Dix NJ). Instead, three of the idiots were killed when the bomb accidentally exploded in an expensive townhouse apartment they were using. It belonged to the parents of Bill Ayers’ then girlfriend.

<< You’re funny, those records are long gone and burned, and the people who took them are dead and buried.... >>

That’s what I would have said a few weeks ago about the records in Hawaii, then a plane dropped out of the sky.

Knarf, I know exactly what you mean. Someone on Fox is saying, “It’s gonna take a LOT of time to go from building to building to search each one.”

If something happens soon at Columbia or Occidental, well... Two is a coincidence — three would be a pattern. :-)

Being old(er) instills a sense of true reality in one's mind.

Kids say, "All y'gutt'a do is ..."

And adults know better.

FWIW...

From what I can tell, Thayer Hall is a freshman dorm; Emerson Hall is home to Philosophy dept; and Sever Hall is misc classrooms. Don’t know where admission records are kept or if they are anywhere near the tight cluster of above 3 bldgs. (Map: http://map.harvard.edu). It wouldn’t matter, though, as the entire campus will be shut down tightly with everyone except LE sent home.

Occam’s Razor says it’s a student prank.

They had a bomb scare at A&M last year when my son was a freshman. Ut didn’t make the lead story at Drudge. Several universities got bomb scares on the same day last year. They were all large public niversities.

Took a boat from Kiel, Germany to Gothenberg, Sweden. A bomb threat was called in and the trip was delayed. Later, I was told that this was a regular occurrence. The Swedes wanted more time to drink the cheap German booze.

BOSTON (AP) — Bomb threats that led to the evacuations of four Harvard University campus buildings this week were made by a student trying to get out of taking a final exam, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

The student, 20-year-old Eldo Kim, sent emails saying bombs had been placed around campus to Harvard police, two university officials and the president of the Harvard Crimson newspaper, according to a criminal complaint filed by the U.S. attorney’s office.
