Bwoglines: Escape the Heat Edition

UNC loves their students more.

A meeting of minds at Campo.  Who’s to say they too weren’t drunk and screaming?

The owner of the Times Square SUV was arrested while trying to flee to Dubai.

Summit Security employees get wage and benefit increases in a new contract.

The MTA and Port Authority have been paying huge amounts of overtime.

We’ve introduced a simple comment rating system so that you, our dear readers, can help us highlight the best comments.  Click the “thumbs up” button if you like a comment and the “thumbs down” if you don’t. Comments below a certain threshold will be hidden from view.

Bwog has received so many submissions for final remarks that it’s taking us longer than usual to go through them all.  Look for a comprehensive list on Wednesday.

Update: Several of you have asked us about an incident in Carman that took place several weeks ago. One student in Carman called CAVA due to concern about the mental health of another student. Public Safety has not released any identifying information, but to the best of our knowledge, all students involved are safe. Public Safety’s official comment: “A student at Carman was in need of medical assistance and it was provided.” Bwog’s post remained up for no more than 90 seconds, and we took it down due to what was then an ongoing Public Safety investigation of a highly personal nature. We did not re-post because it wasn’t news: CAVA helped a student in need, and no one was physically harmed. This is a scenario that takes place often. The information included in this update is the full extent of our knowledge about the incident, however, feel free to email [email protected] with further questions or concerns.

  1. Following up  

    Morning, Bwog! I was worried you had died. I know finals time is really busy so you keep forgetting, but you owe us an explanation of the Carman incident (and your uncustomary silence) from a few weeks ago. Not to worry if it continues to slip your mind though...I'll keep reminding you!

  2. So...  

    no more senior wisdom?

      We're posting one a day unless we post a Campus Character from the magazine. Yesterday we posted Sue Yang's magazine profile and today we'll be posting another Senior Wisdom.

  3. Can I  

    dislike the "like/dislike" buttons?

    THE TYRANNY OF THE MAJORITY IS GOING TO DROWN OUT THE IMPORTANT MINORITY OPINION! LOW RATED COMMENTS ARE HIDDEN! LIBERAL IDEAS WILL PREVAIL. THE CONSERVATIVE MINORITY WILL PERISH. GOD SAVE OUR SOULS. JESUS CAN ONLY SAVE BWOG NOW.

  5. Bwog,  

    I sincerely approve of your update/handling of the situation. Not that that is necessarily important to you, I just wanted to express how impressed I was at your apparent, potentially temporary maturity.

  6. Please  

    explain the choice of photo about UNC loving their students more? I don't understand...

  7. uhhh  

    "Along with receiving a significant rise in wages in the first year of their contract, the officers will also get fully employer-paid single health coverage, _____state-of-the-art security training_____, paid holidays, vacation and sick days."

    Thank God... we will finally be training the Summit people. Rule 1: Do not leave your post. Rule 2: It's still not OK to leave even if it's to go upstairs to make dinner in somebody elses kitchen. Rule 3: It's STILL not OK if you ask me to watch your post for you while you go to break rule 2.
