The Chung-Diamond “scandal”? “Don’t Be a Pussy”? “Epilogue to Our Crime & Punishment: A Petition“? Bwog certainly does, so step into the Wayback machine – you’re about to […]

Dean Galil: Over SEAS

Well, it happened: Dean Zvi Galil has decided to leave “the best job in the world” and accept the position as President of Tel-Aviv University.  Bwog and SEAS are sad.  Mass emails at Columbia—and indeed, Columbia herself—will never be quite the same.
