Does Virginia Tech Offer A Warranty?

So, let me get this straight. On the first day of the fall semester, just months after the tragedy that left 32 people dead during the killing spree on April 16th, five roomates have been hospitalized -- two in critical condition -- because of a carbon monoxide leak at an off-campus apartment?

Sheesh. Remind me not to send Megan or Sarah to Virginia Tech when they are old enough.

That's assuming the school isn't hit by a meteor first, gets trampled by Godzilla, attacked by killer bees, or who know what else.

After today's problems, it seems like the school is cursed in some way. If I was a student, I'd walk into the registrar's office and demand a refund, or at least hazard pay.

At least the students and faculty can get away from all of the problems the school has been facing by getting set to watch one of Virginia Tech's most famous alums, Michael Vick, as he gets set to embark on another season of football with the Atla...
