I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh. On August 6, 1985, someone spray painted silhouettes of dead people all over the streets and sidewalks around campus to represent where all the dead bodies would be, if the Cathedral of Learning was ground zero.(40th anniversary of Hiroshima) I remember this, because I was taking summer classes that year and saw it up close and personal. There were plenty of radicals trying to make a statement then, and I’m sure there are even more now.
I remember that “body silouette” protest in ‘85 too.
My brother had a friend on campus who walked up to these protesters and said “War is good. My dad makes missles for a living. The threat of nuclear war is what pays my tuition at Pitt”.
They were awestruck and dumbfounded at his response.
Upshot of the “new security” is no more non-Pitt students entering the dorms, and no backpacks or book bags can be carried into any campus building.
On a college campus? Yeah, like THAT will last!
