You might remember Dean Buchwald from last year in which she sent out an email alleging a bias-related incident and not even telling us what was said!
She's at it again with this latest bias-related incident. I've bolded the sheer hilarity. "Important message from Scripps College"?! So because a blond woman threw tortillas out of a car, it's now a bias-related incident? Oh give me a break!
Here's a thought! Maybe if Dean Buchwald spent more time doing her job, there wouldn't be such a huge housing crisis at Scripps?

Subject: Bias Related Incident at Scripps
Around 11:30 PM on October 31, 2008 a group of Scripps women were returning home from a gathering at Harvey Mudd College. While crossing Platt Blvd a silver sedan with four women purposefully slowed down and threw tortillas out the car window at them. The women in the car were suspected to be either high school or college students, and the driver of the car had blond hair. The students in the car yelled out the window at a second group of people before throwing the tortillas.
