    Davidson Center Fired Upon

    Today around 10:00 am CDT, three bullets penetrated the north side of the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. Guests were inside, but no one was hurt in the incident. Authorities believe that the shots came from a moving vehicle on Interstate 565.

    At the time I was checking out of my dorm and thinking about how nothing weird had happened this year; around lunchtime, I found out this had happened. I'm glad that no one was hurt and the damage looks relatively simple to repair, but the whole thing seems extremely bizarre.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it was some moron shooting at street signs. People do that around here -- nobody thinks about where bullets go when they miss or what's behind their target.

    Same thing happens on major holidays that involve pyrotechnics. There are always those idiots who go into their front yards and start firing pistols and rifles into the air. The noise is "festive" and, hey, them bullets never comes down, does they?

    This one makes me mad. Bad enough to pepper stop signs, but hasn't space been targeted enough?
