Bwoglines: I Am The April Fool Edition
Written by Levi Cohen
Happening in the world: The Vatican issued a statement denying that Pope Francis made a comment in an interview that “there is no hell.” The Pope has gotten Vatican PR into similar situations before, apparently. Happy Easter! (BBC; Vox.com)
Happening in the US: Laura Ingraham, a Fox News host who has come under fire for saying that March For Our Lives student advocate David Hogg was “whining” about getting rejected by UCLA, has taken a supposedly pre-planned Easter vacation. Ingraham’s show has lost over a dozen advertisers as a result of her comments. (Twitter; Washington Post)
Happening in NYC: De Blasio and Cuomo are fighting, again. Cuomo revealed the new state budget on Friday, which seemed to feature a lot of state oversight into city affairs. I think political science professor at SUNY-New Paltz Gerald Benjamin says it best in the article: “I don’t know if they like each other. They appear not to.” (NY Times)
Happening on campus: Just act a Fool. It’s spring- 59 degrees outside. Eat a salad.
Song of the day:
