You wake up in your 30th floor Park West Village apartment before having breakfast at Whole Foods downstairs.

You think about riding the subway to work, but economic hardship has forced the city to cut your local line.

You instead hop into your green-roofed, solar-powered, bamboo car and take off for Columbia.

You park near Bollinger’s office in Furnald, since Low Library was damaged in the Coulter Riots of ’09.

You’re meeting with PrezBo to encourage his support of Palestinian academic freedom. You’re the latest in a long line to try, but no luck today. Maybe next year.
