Welcome back, police!

Police and emergency officials can enter Washington State University students' dorms again. A court decision last May had barred random police entry. The May case "argued against police 'sticking their nose' in doorjambs to sniff for marijuana," the Daily Evergreen reports. It prevailed thanks to the wording of the school's guest policy, which included police as among those who would have to be checked in to enter. Yesterday, in an emergency rule change, WSU's governing body redefined guests as, basically, everyone but police. Well, at least your parents still have to sign in.
