Good day, Bad day
Low-key marketing, the honor system.
Good day for: Low-key marketing, as two Northeastern University freshmen were arrested after one of them, Michael Emery, 18, allegedly leaned out his dorm window and yelled, within earshot of police officers, that his roommate had marijuana for sale. "I can tell you that they are no longer students here at Northeastern," said Laura Shea, a school spokeswoman. (The Boston Globe)
Bad day for: The honor system, as Norman Hsu—a wealthy donor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign—disappeared after turning himself in on old business-fraud charges last week and posting $2 million in cash as bail. Hsu had already skipped out once, 15 years ago when the charges were fresh. (The New York Times, free registration required)
