    Glad to see Jeff Woody on there, he was the most practical voice during the whole thing.

    They need to make a VEISHEA Task Force that just patrols the streets during VEISHEA tazing people that get too rowdy.

    "Can you swing a sack of door knobs?"
    "Can I!!!"
    "You're in! Here's the sack."
    "But you gotta supply your own knobs."

    This is a panel of people with pretty deep commitments to Iowa State. I think it is good news for VEISHEA. Nobody on the list, to my knowledge, would be the type to eliminate VEISHEA.

    Tom Hill would in a damn heartbeat. He didn't want it to come back last time.

    Don't know him. Hope he is only a minority voice.

    omg this is so awesome.

    he is a big voice at Iowa State.

    edit* he's chairing the committee, so I don't think he'll be a small voice.

    If this was a look-a-like thread, I'd have one.

    That's a great double meaning you got right there.

    Like I said, I don't know him, but I may have stepped in it there. It seems like most of the names on the list that I do know would be folks who are pretty vested in ISU traditions.

    Kent: Well, what do you say to the accusation that your group
    has been causing more crimes than it's been preventing?

    Homer: Oh, Kent, I'd be lying if I said my men weren't
    committing crimes.

    I would say the woman who is the vice pres of the "south campus neighborhood assn" might be a tad bit anti-VEISHEA. However, once again, that would be the wrong target for her ire. VEISHEA itself is family friendly. The damage was the result of a drunken mob.

    I really hope the task force ends up looking at all options and isn't just a convenient set of names for Leath to blame an unpopular decision on. Having someone like Woody on there gives me hope that is not the case, but who knows.

    They should take a look at what Madison/University of Wisconsin did with Freakfest.

    VP of student affairs since the late 90's. Maybe it's a good thing you don't know him well. ;)

    Having talked to people who were there last week, I hear talk from folks who think tipping cars and knocking over light poles is fun. I've even heard some say that the kid who got hit by the pole was partly responsible because he wasn't paying attention. Everyone else knew to move out of the way.

    A neighborhood association person may be able help the committee address the mindset of partiers who seem to need to establish a few guidelines, such as "no car tipping" and "no knocking over light poles."
