Tinkling Their Dislike

At Lamont Library on the campus of Harvard University, some 40 LGBT books were recently vandalized with urine.

Somebody had a whiz of an opinion to express.

The Crimson reported that library staffers found next to the ruined books an empty bottle, which may have contained the urine.

Think about the trouble somebody seems to have gone to: peeing repeatedly in a bottle, smuggling the bottle into the library, and waiting until the coast was clear to pour out the contents.

This person was on a mission. Either from God or a urologist.

Since the books were LGBT, the Harvard University Police Department is treating the incident as a bias crime.

Of course, the perpetrator could simply have been a student looking to get out of some reading. The student doesn't hate gays, just homework.

That's my fantasy, and I'm sticking to it.
