South Pasadena High was vandalized just a few days ago with extremely offensive graffiti near the entrance to the school. I hope they catch the vandals or at least have some good leads.

They have. There's a link to the Pasadena Sun (or is it Star News?) article on the front page. I hope they're prosecuted to the full extent of the law. BTW, the school wasn't the only place they vandalized...
