    Absolutely! There were school board member(s) against this when it was presented to them few years ago. But majority rules. Now it's a, "see I told you so" issue. No way FTIS lets any sport program do spring break trips again. None!

    Brian Williams was there when the incident happened. He's on it, too.

    He covered Gettysburg for the Union Gazette, and also covered Washington;s crossing of the Deleware. Easily the most respected journalist of all time.

    It wasn't uncommon after basketball games to wait until someone shampooed up in the shower then everybody would whizz on them. Not really the same because, well, you are in the shower, after all.

    We often waged dorm wars with our buddies on the floor back at school. Couple squirts of hand lotion in somebody's toothpaste was always a winner. Whizzing in someone's shampoo was another.

    To all the suspended kids involved that are probably sitting there reading the comments: I hope you are realizing all the posters on here have done something stupid at one time or another. Be sorry, forgiven and don't let this moment define you. Go be a better person. You can.

    Can they talk particulars? I always thought they were very limited on what they could disclose about students.

    Poor, poor kids who urinated on someone. Shame on anyone for speaking poorly of them.
