    Public Safety report. The perpetrators of the egg throwing vandalism when discovered should be required at their own expense to provide food to a community organization devoted to feeding the hungry. Their behavior is not harmless and ought to be redressed with behavior that is restorative. Maurice Eldridge, alum ’61
