Bwog received word today that the famed conservative periodical, the Weekly Standard has published in its most recent issue an adamant critique of Columbia’s Manhattanville expansion, on ideological grounds opposed to eminent domain.  Not only is fair alma featured in the piece as an unyielding slumlord, but another surprising character makes a curious appearance.

What Bwog found more peculiar than the Standard’s bashing of the expansion plan, was the flowery description of Columbia’s most notorious opponent, who is showered with praise throughout the article. Nick Sprayregen, of mini-storage empire fame makes a prominent appearance throughout journalist Jonathan Last’s (you might know him best for his famous eulogy of Captain America) piece, and it seems to focus almost exclusively on Sprayregen’s multifarious options if he refuses to sell his land to Columbia rather than offering any other serious arguments against the Manhattanville expansion. 

This left Bwog to wonder if Sprayregen and recently-troubled conservative intellectuals are the newest and strangest of bedfellows?  If so, what further twists lie ahead in Nick the Quick’s Columbian saga?  We’ll leave that one up to you to decide.
