Alums – They Do Stuff!

Freshmen are probably noticing that NSOP slows down the pace of events quite a bit as it moves into the weekend. Bwog thought it would slow things down as well and bring you a round-up of Columbians in the news. We know it’s not all national or internation news, but not all of us can be presidential candidates.

  • President Mikheil Saakashvili of Georgia remains closely allied to the United States despite continual pressure from Russia.
  • Tim Horrigan CC ’69 is running for New Hampshire State representative. For more background on him, check out his Netscap-era website.
  • The Buffalo News profiles Dan Foote CC ’85, who is currently on diplomatic mission to Iraq.
  • Future alum/current 2010er Raphael Graybill was in Denver this past week as the youngest member of Montana’s delegation.

    @Ray BWOG, can you post about Facebook’s Books On Campus application so we can recruit freshmen and buy/sell affordable books?

    @anoner Barack Obama, CC ’83, is somewhere in the country being kind of a big deal.

      @... yeah but ever since that thing last year, no one on campus likes to give him any additional media attention.

      1. and.... says:

        @and.... And for some reason, he hardly ever mentions the fact that he spent some time here, though he mentions his Harvard law degree every other day.

        1. .................. says:

          @.................. good point! /sarcasm

        2. you says:

          @you would think that he’d play up Columbia more having majored in IR while being criticized for lacking expertise in it.

          1. so? says:

            @so? Simply majoring in IR doesn’t mean you’re qualified. You need experience, too, not just education.

    @gaffeter “I think it’s important work,” [Horrigan] said. “Preserving our personal freedoms and democracies.”
