Colbert heist and trick or toking

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Toronto â€" Transgendered students will soon have a place to call their own at York University.

An upcoming pilot project is creating one of the first “gender-neutral” residences in the country â€" a six-bedroom suite in Calumet College.

The project was planned by various campus groups, including the SexGen York Committee and the Transgendered, Bisexual, Lesbian and Gay Association at York.

This is one more step in York’s ongoing diversity initiatives. Last year, the university added gender-neutral washrooms to campus and took gender identification off its residence applications.

While no one really knows the level of demand for gender-neutral living quarters, proponents are pleased with the project, which is expected to launch in fall 2008.

Waterloo â€" Not only has Stephen Colbert vanished from the race for prez, but his likeness recently disappeared from the BookStore at the University of Waterloo.

Two female thieves kidnapped a Colbert cut-out from the BookStore on Nov. 1 and were last seen dashing with the cardboard comedian towards the engineering buildings (surprise, surprise).

However, BookStore staff refrained from contacting campus police after hearing word Colbert would be returned safe and sound. Sure enough, the cardboard cut-out was left outside the bookstore on Nov. 7, albeit a bit tattered from its travels.

We can’t blame the ladies for their kidnapping attempt. Tall, dark, handsome and a near candidate for both major American parties â€" who wouldn’t want to call Colbert their own?

New York â€" Teenage trick-or-treaters got more than they bargained for on Halloween when one Geneseo University student offered them pot instead of candy.

According to the Village of Geneseo Police Department, Joshua Balduf has been charged with second-degree criminal sale of marijuana and two misdemeanors for first degree unlawfully dealing with a child and first degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Initially, the eager 15 to 17-year old Halloween revelers asked for candy. Then alcohol. Then, later, Balduf had the brilliant idea to offer them pot instead â€" and smoked it with them.

After learning of the incident from one of the teens’ father, police searched Balduf’s apartment. On Nov. 2, both his roommates were arrested as well and are due in court on Dec. 4.

Now, Balduf’s stuck in a tricky situation for treating some kids to sticky.
