As you, the faithful reader, already know, the Multnomah University sign had the letters "LOVE" stolen out of it.
"LOVE" Is Back
Campus Services got the sign repaired just in time for graduation last week - so now the "love" is back in MU.
Love Is Also Expensive
Have you ever heard the song "Can't Buy Me Love" by Paul McCartney? Well, apparently, sometimes you can "buy me love" - for about $486.00. That's how much it cost to replace four letters on that sign - wow! I feel like we should take up a "love offering" for this (would that mean that felony theft is now tax deductible? I digress).
After following up with security and checking with my "student informants", we are still no closer to solving the "Caper of Lost Love"...however, rumors are floating that it was one of 2 possibilities:
A senior prank?
A metal thief who was very disappointed to find out the letters are actually vinyl?
We'll likely never know.
