College Kids Have to Write an Essay

Seven Red Sox fans were ordered to write a five-page essay explaining what they learned from their experience of being arrested after the Sox won the ALCS Sunday night. They were among 26 people (shockingly made up of mostly college kids) who got charged with disorderly conduct. Apparently they ignored the police when asked to clear the area around Fenway Park after the game.

You see, the problem here is that this punishment is deceptively dangerous. It's enticing...like that "Who do you think you are?" question I used to get from my mom that always ended with me being grounded.
