Blame outsiders – not students – for this warning


Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy tweets: “@UTArlington students are still taking lots of newspapers – too many, it seems.”

Actually, this sign was put up because of outsiders, I’m told. University of Texas at Arlington Department of Communication support specialist Ashley Bustillo tells me that the warning was put up because non-students would come into the building and take coupons from the Sunday newspapers. (The “news center” is near the front door.) There are no cameras watching the newspaper box, she says; it’s faculty and staff eyes doing the “surveillance.” Bustillo says the Sunday papers are generally gone – or may not have been delivered – when she gets to Communication building on Mondays, so she doesn’t know if the warning worked.
