    Re: Task Force Recommendation for VEISHEA

    Well, so much for getting to play in the parade again.. wasn't able to make it back the past 3 years. This year I might have.. but then dumb people happened.

    This is throwing the baby out with the bath water and is sad. I still think it could've been handled by paring back on events and maybe only making it VEISHEA weekend instead of the whole week. But it's clear they didn't want to fix it, the people at the top just wanted it gone.

    I know I saw that in the Constitution.

    Bill of Rights:

    1. Speech, religion, etc.
    2. Guns
    3. VEISHEA
    4. Search and seizure

    Etc.

    Pretty sad. Makes one wonder if the committee (Tom Hill) really wants to hear possible solutions to big parties getting out of control. Apparently blaming Veishea is easier than putting the blame where it really belongs, on some out of control drunks and making them take responsibility for their actions. Or better yet finding solutions to work with and/or prevent parties from getting out of control. This is the 2nd time in the last 10 years this has been a newsworthy occurrence so it needs to get more attention, but not to over-react.

    Lots of arrests and bad things happen tailgating. Better get ride of that too.

    I think older generations had it better. The current method for presenting news and immediate need for action has crippled much of what once was.

    I thought college age people were once considered grown ups? Glad helicopter parents still think they need to be babysitted.

    Good for you! Glad you didn't take that initial response and quit.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    I don't see much evidence of parents of students being involved in this at all. I'd say it's more a good number of Ames residents who are fed up with so-called "adults" who can't seem to keep their **** together. I'm sorry to all the students who work hard on their exhibits, but like I said before, there's plenty of room at the Boone County Fair next to all the other 4-H projects. VEISHEA has long been a black eye on the town and the University. If they want to try it again in a few years, okay. But if it's gone for good, then good riddance.

    Re: Task Force Recommendation for VEISHEA

    I think there are a lot of other effective things that could of been tried (that had not been tried yet) to keep the tradition that is VEISHEA alive. VEISHEA does so many good things for ISU/Ames, ending it for the few bad things that happen with it seems like the easy way out.

    I would bet it gets brought back in a few years. Just take a few years off and kind of hit the reset button.

    And if you're chanting VEISHEA, VEISHEA, VEISHEA... while watching then you've lost the "it was just a few bad eggs" argument completely.

    Doubly so when it happened on a Tuesday.

    I love how delusional you are on the subject. Not so much a critique on this post, but overall your responses in this thread. According to you, the only thing veishea is and is good is what happens after midnight. Have fun at the Boone County Fair.
