QUESTION 12
INTERVIEWER:

I'M GOING TO ASK, YOU KNOW, THERE WERE RUMORS ABOUT THE TROOPS BEING IN THE WAY, OR WALKING INTO THE GIRLS' BATHROOMS. THERE WERE RUMORS ABOUT THE TROOPS, BEING IN THE WAY OR WALKING INTO THE GIRLS' BATHROOMS. WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THEM?

Marcia Webb Lecke:

There were a lot of—excuse me—there were a lot of rumors at school that year, and some of them that I would hear would be like, there were troops who would be in the girls' restroom, and to me, that just was another example of how the whole incident of Central had been sensationalized by the press, and they had seized upon even rumors, and had turned them into fact. So, I, I regretted that.
