La Crosse is a great town with humble people. There is no showboating and it's fairly laid back. I've never lived in such a relaxed place. As most of us know college towns don't usually have that vibe. At least Madison and Tempe and Minneapolis don't. Which is why I was so surprised to hear of such a disgusting sexual assault case that occurred on campus in late September.
Note: I finished reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and Ad and I recently watched the movie. Both have depictions of sodomy (in the form of rape) which I find to be cruel and unusual punishment.
I read the police report on what this poor young man (T.J.H.) went through - and how his roommates and 'friends' said it was only to get even with him because he was throwing card at one of the assailants while he was trying to take an online quiz. Apparently poking each other in the butt is considered similar to assualting your friend with the handle of a lint roller. It's not humourous in the least, but is big news around here - because it is just so wildly weird to think that two college aged boys (18 and 19) would go out of their way to rape their roommate with an inanimate object.
