Bwoglines: Hidden Danger? Edition

Impending doom?

Definitely Not

A couple with poor timing reportedly attempted to enter the mile high club on 9/11. The couple’s prolonged absence from their seats prompted an emergency landing and arrest by a team of SWAT officers. (Gothamist)

According to a riveting profile on a turnstyle-jumping youth, shirking your subway fee is the first step towards a life of “flip-floppy” moral depravity. You’ve been warned. (NYDailyNews)

You Decide

On a more serious note.

Columbia’s Black Alumni Council released a statement about the resignation of Dean Moody-Adams, posted below.

We, the Black Alumni Council, thank Dean Moody-Adams for her dedicated service to the College as Dean and Vice President for Undergraduate Education.

Columbia’s black community is particularly gratified that Dean Moody-Adams filled her historic role as the first minority and first female Dean of the College with such aplomb, grace, and dedication. Dean Moody-Adams set a very high standard for professionalism, scholarship, and composure under challenging circumstances.

The Black Alumni Council wants Dean Moody-Adams’s brief tenure to be remembered with dignity for her accomplishments, dedication and sacrifice. As she steps into an equally prominent role among a small, but significant, group of female faculty and faculty of color, we wish her well.

    @ARSTNEIO A thousand times yes on the gun reciprocity! Imagine if your driver’s license wasn’t valid across state borders; that’s the plight of gun owners are experiencing now. Hope I’ll be able to carry in NYC by the time I graduate!
