A man dies after falling down the stairs at the courthouse on the day of his trial. Can the court get sued now? (NY Times). Thought the world was done with Charles Manson. (Rolling Stone) Columbia is getting sued for being too dark and injuring a detective while he was chasing someone on the job. […]
Today is Columbus Day! Two years ago, New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser criticized Columbia for holding classes on Columbus Day, which prompted Jim Downie, Bwog’s editor at the time (and now op-ed web editor for the Washington Post), to pen a brilliant critique of the NYPost column. For your edification: As the coda to today’s […]
Do you recall that NYPD monitoring of Muslim student groups at area universities was kind of a big deal? It still is, and your peers are quoted attesting to that!

The New York Post, tone-deaf as ever, reports the story with the headline “Columbia Frat Honcho Jailed.” Walter Perry, the titular honcho, is accused of stealing $650,000 from Saint Anthony’s over six years, and has been sentenced to at least 24 months of jail time.

The investigation into last year’s noose-hanging incident has yet to pinpoint any possible suspects, while the plagiarism investigation remains tightly under wraps, with both Constantine’s […]
And a top of the Monday to you, Bwogophiles. We begin today’s headcount with a pictorial update on one of Fair Alma’s proudest and most rankling traditions: making sure South Lawn is closed all the time, no matter what, virtually year-round. Indeed, nothing says “long, depressing winter” quite like the antiseptic layer of tarp that carpets […]
We don’t do it for the glory, but it is nice to get some recognition once in a while (even if it is from another blog). US News and World Report’s higher education page, The Paper Trail, is running a reader poll of the year’s campus news, and we’re up there for Best Alternative Media […]
