Tuesdays With Barry

Written by

So while we’re on the subject of academic calendar discontent, it’s worth pointing out that the first day of classes for Spring Term falls on Inauguration Day, when approximately all of the Earth’s population will congregate in Washington for Obama’s swearing-in. 

One Bwog staffer was quick to point out that “the first day of classes doesn’t matter,” while another countered that it does matter if you have a seminar on Tuesday and the professor hands over your spot to a lucky wait-lister.

Unlike student council’s tenuous battle against Study Day, this is one unfortunate act of calendering that’s not going anywhere. So, the decision is yours, but the generosity of your new professors is up to the fates.

    persistent art student do when she couldn't ever get a good sketch of Obama?

  2. so...

  3. fuck

    the punster. It really is aggravating

  4. what will they  

    call it when the Obamas bring their new pet into the White House?

    In-dog-uration!

  5. yay  

    I love puns! And I will be proudly watching his Inauguration on my Columbia TV.

  6. Problem Solved

    Hey Prof: I'm going to Obama's inauguration. I will get you a commemorative T-shirt. Thanks in advance.

    Best,
    -Student

  7. DON'T COME

    As a recent transplant to DC, I am imploring, begging, PLEADING with you all to please NOT come to DC for inauguration. The Metro can barely handle rush hour on a Monday...1.5 million people squeezed onto The Mall screaming "I see him! I see him! Oh..wait...that's just Secret Service" for 5 hours in 20 degree weather is not going to be enjoyable or memorable. I swear.

  8. Oh I disagree  

    While the DC Metro sucks, 1.5 million people squeezed onto The Mall screaming "I see him! I see him! Oh..wait...that's just Secret Service" for 5 hours in 20 degree weather will absolutely be memorable.

  9. Why  

    Is MLK Jr. vs Obama?
