The Scariest High School Elective Ever


Criminology was taught by one Buddy Longo, a figure of legend around the halls of SHHS. I have no idea how Buddy was qualified to teach the class, other than the fact that he knew a lot of cops and had a friend who was supposedly some kind of former spy, who came in one day to show us the Zapruder film (“Look how his head comes off! Like the lid of a cookie jar.”) Buddy LOVED serial killers, and would enrapture us with stories about Edmund Kemper eating his mother’s larynx like he was reading “Make Way for Ducklings” to preschoolers.

Every high school should have a senior elective called “Criminology”! It sounds like it’s good for young minds.
