Hazing News

CBS Sunday Morning may examine hazing at 9 a.m. Feb 5.

If the show airs, it will be at 9 a.m. Eastern time this morning to discuss the hazing death with the parents of a pledge whose loss the parents have vowed to honor with ant-hazing and anti-alcohol messages to keep other young men and women alive. HN (PS I say “may” because program directory in Indianapolis says there will be 6 hours of straight Superbowl programming instead in our city, pre-empting CBS Sunday Morning coverage).
