Approaching its $4 Billion capital campaign goal, Columbia is raking in the dough (Spec). Learn to bike like a champ. The cycling master who taught Joseph Gordon-Levitt to barrel down Broadway demonstrates how to “be a fish in the coral.” (City Room). Obama hits the road. (NYTimes) Way back when on October 18th, the United […]

The tongues of former commies and renegade colonists are back in style, Young idealists are still hopping on the bandwagon, Barack Obama spreads hope and change, San Francisco finally puts its money where its (progressive) mouth is, and Conservatives pretend its 1773.
President Barack Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize, basically for existing. (Times) Harvard students lose the “right” to a hot breakfast. (Times) Harlem braces for trouble with getting an accurate census. (Spec) NASA “slams” two probes into the moon to look for hidden ice.
