Diamonds and Coal

Diamonds and Coal, Oct. 1

Friday, October 1, 2010

Coal to the “Techniques of Surveillance” class for posting all of its information on a public website. It may be too meta even for MCM, but we are watching you.


Coal to the cluster “flukes” caused by printing hysteria. We just want our PawPrints!    


A diamond to Kabob and Curry for heating things up at the Blue Room. We still want the microwave back though.


A diamond to Playboy features, because “there’s no such thing as bad publicity,” according to Professor of Economics Glenn Loury, who was recently highlighted alongside the Girls of the Pacific-10. Though he does not read the magazine, he posits the “interesting articles attract attention.” No, that’s probably not what’s drawing “readers” to the publication’s pages.  


Coal to National Grid for the Thayer Street blackout,  and for interfering with the completion of our homewo- … No, we changed our minds — diamond for getting the blackout started before we even got to Fish Co.


And on that note, a diamond to the GISP that went to Fish Co. and “asked people if they were in love.” Though what you felt on the dance floor is not all there is to love, it may be just the tip.


And a good luck diamond to the Corporation as they descend onto campus this weekend. We’d tell you which dorm has the best party, but we’re still waiting for you to build it.
