Bwoglines: Sidewalk Trap Doors, Drug Cartels, And Columbia Homecoming

Welcome to the equally solemn and enthusiastic beginning to your morning. We take the good with the bad, and so should you.

Happening in the World: Five cartel members and a Mexican National Guard police officer were among the eight people who were killed on Thursday after the son of an infamous drug cartel leader, “El Chapo,” was seized at a house in the city of Culiacán. The son was initially arrested, but President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador advocated for his freedom. (BBC)

Happening in the US: A judge in Florida blocked the law that civil rights groups have called an unconstitutional “poll tax.” The judge, Robert Hinkle, granted the preliminary injunction in an attempt to reproach the Republican-controlled State Legislature. (NYT)

Happening in New York: New York City sidewalks can be a struggle to navigate, but for the woman who fell into a covered pit on Eighth Avenue and West 35th Street, the sidewalks became threatening and hazardous. She had to be hospitalized; if you take one lesson from this story, let it be to watch carefully where you step! (NY Daily News)

Happening on Campus: Get hyped!! It is officially Columbia University’s 75th Annual Homecoming Weekend!!!!!! Don’t fret if you’re utterly bewildered by this whole phenomenon. I was too, but then I stumbled upon this comprehensive PDF informing the masses about all things Hoco! Pick and choose your way to celebrate a proper collegiate homecoming extravaganza.

Weekly Song Recommendation: “Feel Special” by TWICE is what you should listen to as you’re dancing–no, flailing–around your room to exert the excess energy you acquired after chugging three (3) Yerba Mate’s in one sitting. It’s ok, we have all been there.
