Report from the front

September 2, 2008

I admire a student journalist who tries to punch up the lede on a routine story:

The first week of school introduced several students to a law enforcement agency devoted to preventing their underage debauchery.

Indiana State Excise Police Cpl. Brian Lang said excise officers have issued about 25 citations since move-in weekend. The majority of them were issued to students, he said.

Good word, “debauchery.” Unjustly underused these days, all things considered.
