UA student arrested for bringing gun to class

Student upset with topic discussed, gun to serve as protection

A University of Arizona student was arrested last Wednesday after admitting that he brought a gun to campus.

Officers confronted Brenton House, 29, a creative writing graduate student and poetry center employee, after an individual in the class told officers that House carried a 9-mm pistol into a poetry class.

House was upset with the topic discussed, a student-written piece made fun of presidential candidate George W. Bush and "rednecks," during the class two weeks earlier.

He then went to the class on Oct. 4 with a Confederate flag draped around his waist and carried a gun in protest, UAPD reports stated.

Seductive and stupid

The Ladies Man" rubs audiences the right way

Somehow, somewhere, a pact with Satan is surely responsible for the spate of movies adapted from "Saturday Night Live" skits. Perhaps best exemplified by the Butabi brothers' opus, "A Night At the Roxbury," "SNL" movies take skits that are barely funny in their original seven-minute incarnations, tack on a plot that would seem ridiculous in a porn flick, add cameos from faded celebrities, and ride the resultant film to rollicking success - in an alternate universe.
