**Springsteen Sighting** Students spotted the legendary Bruce Springsteen in Leo O’Donovan Hall and Healy Circle yesterday. “The Boss” was reportedly on campus with his daughter, an accepted student to the Class of 2014. *Thumbs Up*

**Clean-Up Climb** Twenty Nepali climbers will trek to heights of more than 8,000 meters above sea level in order to clear garbage that has collected near the top of Mount Everest. *Thumbs Up*

**Paper Over Plastic** Leo’s marked Earth Day this week by switching to recyclable straws made of thick paper, rather than the traditional plastic. *Thumbs Up*

**Taken** Dozens of gunmen kidnapped at least six people in a Holiday Inn in Monterrey, Mexico, this Wednesday. The attack is only one example of increasing violence across Mexico due to drug trafficking. *Thumbs Down*

**Flying Dragon** A D.C. man was given 40 hours of community service, a $100 fine and one year of supervised probation after being convicted of animal cruelty. The man was charged after throwing his son’s pet bearded dragon across the street and killing it. *Thumbs Down*”
