Moses parted the Red Sea, and America can “turn off” (redirect) Niagara Falls…in order to repair two pedestrian bridges, to ensure tourist safety. Hurrah! (NY Times) Enfant terrible Donald Trump boycotted last night’s Republican Debate, but that didn’t stop candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz from verbally jousting over immigration. (NY Times) Zika virus infections […]
A record-breaking number of earthquakes are terrorizing Mammoth Lakes, California. (LA Times) Kim K was the victim of another red carpet prank at Paris Fashion Week.

Historically, New York has not seen many tornados. (So few so that Bwog had to lookup whether there’s an “e” in the plural. You can go either way.) To celebrate this atypical natural splendor, Alexandra Svokos urges you to Choose Your Own Adventure: A. You are sitting in bed, noshing on some Strawberry Veronas and […]

Just read these interviews and you will know your path! (Pg. 8-12) Is there going to be an apocalypse? No. (Pg. 4) Do all […]
At last, Harvard doesn’t have an infinite endowment. Oh right, but now we have even less money. This semester, the Columbia bureaucracy did stuff we didn’t want it to do. 2008: sucks. 1956: that sucked too. What to do about the world crashing in around Columbia, with some improvised Dylan lyrics. World continues to spin […]
Bwog’s Film Rental Guide returns! Film correspondent Mark Hay rolls with the new mood. At first it seemed just a series of fleeting, disparaging, sensationalized headlines.
