You’ve Got Mail(man)

Bwoglines: Something Is In The Air

What does it feel like when even your running mate thinks your opponent is more qualified for the office than you? In an interview with MSNBC, Bill Weld, the libertarian vice presidential nominee, accidentally spilled the wrong cup of tea: “I’m not sure anybody’s more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United […]

In the world of football, Michigan State decided to run up the score after Michigan apparently “disrespected” them earlier in the game by planting a spear in their field.

ResLife: Accidental Missionaries, or Introducing: Scripture Candy-Gate

We were dismayed to receive the following Concerned Email from Nussbaum resident Allon Brann this afternoon. Brann, like so many unsuspecting students, attended the Nussbaum incarnation of ResLife’s Thanksgiving free-food giveaway.

It may not have equaled the original Big Kiss — or even Big Kiss II — but the Queer Alliance and QuAM’s today’s Kiss-In got its point across. “When we’re organizing around sexual identity and you say we’re talking too much about sex — it’s ridiculous!” said Activism and Service Chair Peter Gallotta, spreading his […]

The Daily Screwup

This time, the critics were right. We tried reporting on the Blight demonstration on South Lawn at noon today, which was a protest of Columbia’s lack of transparency in the expansion process and the potential use of eminent doman to obtain the last few properties in Manhattanville that Columbia needs to build its new satellite […]
