Their Endless, Numbered Days
Written by Bwog Staff
It may feel like the beginning of second semester outside, but the 40 Days event is happening now out on Low Plaza. To the delight of many, they’ve got more sandwiches than one can shake a stick at. But it turns out a large bunch of seniors are in the middle of another countdown, that of Passover (5 days to go, buds) and thus can’t eat the food that’s currently out there. A few disgruntled tipsters have reported that all of the Kosher food was gone by 12:45.
One senior writes that there were only “10 bottles of kosher wine and 10 kosher meals” while “close to 30% of the 2000 seniors planning on attending are Jewish.” Demanding an apology, the same student feels that the event “is clear case of cultural insensitivity and…should not stand, especially at a Columbia where Anti-Semitic claims are not a new thing.” He would like a kiss-and make-up event after the holiday, but that would be, well, 35 days until they walk.
Thanks to Lenora Babb for the picture.
