Have Gorge, Will Swim

Now, did anybody expect any other possible outcome from such a ridiculous and wasteful idea as a fence to keep students out of Fall Creek Gorge? I didn't think so:

Officer dispatched to take a report regarding an unknown individual(s) cutting a 4 x 4 hole in a gate of a chain link fence. The unknown individual(s) also stole the lock and locking mechanism to the gate and a 4 x 4 entrance sign.

We're publishing our content many hundred miles away from Ithaca, so if anybody could furnish pictures, it would be appreciated. At the same time, however, it should be noted that MetaEzra in no way condones criminal mischief, trespass, or property damage in any way shape or form.

I will say it again: This website would absolutely love to know which department of the administration thought up the idea of the fence. Anonymity guaranteed.

If there is anybody out there who doesn't feel comfortable about stepping through a broken chain-linked fence to get down into the Fall Creek Gorge, rest assured that there are other places to appreciate the gorges on campus. Of course, they too are illegal to swim in, but it doesn't stop these scofflaws:
