Sad news from my alma mater.

Mr. Sutherland, an agriculture professor who was among dozens of Westerners kidnapped by Islamic militants in Beirut in the 1980s, was released in 1991.

I remember the day he was released. I was a junior at Colorado State, and everyone in my dorm was huddled around the lounge T.V. (this was before the internet was public). The yellow ribbons that had been on trees all across Fort Collins all came down. We had a huge celebration for his homecoming at Moby Arena. It was amazing. RIP, Professor Sutherland.
