    “… there was a man with a small knife …” — “Serious threat on campus, stay in your rooms. Run, hide, fight.”

    Remove CU’s clown car of an administration now; it was grossly irresponsible to issue such an hysterical, unwarranted warning absent any evidence of a threat. I’m sure there are men with small knives on campus every day — students, staff, and visitors; if that warrants shutting down the campus, it should simply be abandoned.
