The report included details of a vicious prank Romney and some of his friends played on another classmate at the Cranbrook Schools in 1965.

“Back in high school, I did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize for that,” Romney said Thursday morning in a radio interview with Fox News.

Horowitz will take questions in a post on the Facebook page at 3:30 p.m. about Romney’s high school years, what his classmates remember about the presidential candidate as a teenager, and reactions to the story.
