In fact, clothes stopped growing on people’s bodies as early as 1878.
Circles are for lefties.
Because you’ll want to share with the other freshmen…
And he smiled and thanked me, and we learned from each other.
In the grand tradition of the December 7th parade…
Queens are women too.
A Yalie proves her brilliance once again.
What a gentleman.
Filing away the world’s troubles…
Is food really our strongest selling point?
The president of Choose Life at Yale (CLAY), Sarah Heiman, told YDN reporter Erfun Geula that her group had no intention of “antagonz[ing] abortion rights groups,” seeking only to “raise awareness of anti-abortion positions.” The Reproductive Rights Action League at Yale (RALY) responded in typically shrill fashion, denying their intent to get in “a trivial shouting match with a supposedly-rival group.” I’m sorry, who was shouting? Of course, CLAY has problems of its own: avoiding “moral positioning” makes it pretty darn hard to argue against abortion. (quotes from the Yale Daily News, 9/10/03)
After the disastrous vote last spring, in which graduate students voted against unionizing under GESO, the Graduate Employees and Students Organization lost its credibility. Now, it is trying to bring Yale professors down to its level, with its members whining to the Academic Labor Board that they were victims of harrassment and intimidation. GESO, of course, knows nothing about such tactics. Coffee, anyone?
The city of New Haven recently billed Yale for $101,800, claiming that the university has a responsibility to pay for the overtime hours cops were forced to work during the strike. That’s right, Yale forced its workers into the middle of the street and is responsible for the public threat they created. Yale should not pay this bill-– to do so would admit culpability for the huge media circus that union members wanted to call a strike.
And finally, we can’t resist a jab at that other conservative publication of campus, Light & Truth. (Okay, there are several more of them in the Media Watch section, but who’s counting?) From the Light & Truth Fall 2003 Survival Guide:
“Located a couple of blocks past the courthouse on Elm Street, DelMonico Hatter has been serving Yale students since 1908. The manager and owner of the shop, Mr. Joe DelMonico, has run the Hatter for the past 69 years. He can recall days such as Derby Day, when students would purchase 150 to 200 dozen hard straw hats.” From the Yale Free Press October 2001 issue: “Speaking of absence, Light & Truth extolled the long-time proprietor of DelMonico’s Hatters, Joe Delmonico, spekaing of him in the present tense. Sadly, Joe passed away earlier this year…” That’s right folks, they still haven’t changed it.
