Scooping the Sun

Because we're journalists at heart -- and live by the news cycle -- it's hard for us not to be disappointed that the Cornell Sun is truly living up to the proclamation that its editors are on "summer break."

While we certainly don't have expectations for daily updates -- heck, we all need a break every once in a while -- it's been surprising that The Sun's editors haven't taken a couple minutes away from their internship cubicles to bring important news to the school community.

Earlier this week, it was the disappearance -- and now, presumed death -- of alumnus Philip Merrill '55, which you might have read about here at MetaEzra.

Now, we're learning from The Sun's competitor that David A. Schlaegel (back row, third from left) has plead innocent to "first-degree rape in connection with an alleged sexual assault that occurred on campus" back in February. The victim is another University employee. Schlaegel, since barred from campus, is free on bail.

What other big news will break this summer? And will we regrettably have to learn about it from the Ithaca Journal? We hope not.
