A different kind of campus censorship 

This just tickled my funny bone.
Two students at Framingham State College have admitted to helping steal several dozen copies of the campus�s student newspaper, The Gatepost, after it ran a photograph of them and five other women at a recent lacrosse game with their stomachs bare. Today�s Boston Globe reported that the students at the Massachusetts college had bared their midriffs and painted letters on them in order to spell out the name of a player.
Was it modesty? No, the article states -- the pictures made the coeds look fat, in their own estimation. I guess I could make a statement about the state of America from this, but I'd rather just smile.
