Bwog noted in February that iPods, newly present in Lerner vending machines, had apparently become as necessary to our daily lives as chips and condoms. In today’s edition of Education Life, the New York Times makes the same observation, and discloses that the same number of iPods have been stolen (four) as have been bought. Instead of students, Dining Services director Larry Levitas lay the blame squarely at the feet of the proletariat.

Money quote: “Isn’t the first thing they teach in vending-machine school supposed to be locking the door?”

Also, Bwog doesn’t know what the Times is talking about with its “Cyber Cafe.” “Blue Java” sounds sort of similar; we’re sure it’s an honest mistake.

Thanks to Shira Burton for the tip.
