When You Lawyer Up to Hide Data You're Liein'

Penn State's response to a Climategate FOIA request:

Expect some high falutin' rational such as, "The data belongs to someone else", or "private emails (on a public owned computer)", but also expect the arrogance displayed to not go unnoticed by the body politic even in pennsylvania.

State Universities are all the time gettin' too big for their britches, and need to be occasionally reminded where the money comes from as illustrated by UK's recent firing of a student employee for having his pistol in his car. For some reason schools feel ideologically bound to the practice of violating the civil rights of their students and employees. Must be a Mao thing.

Funny thing, the high school I went to had a shooting range (it's still there, just not used), and it wasn't built till 1975.  Would their heads spin if they knew that kids could keep guns in their lockers?
