nedsSunday Shout-Out picks out the week’s stories that simply slipped our minds.

Those “I got used at Ned’s” stickers that they attach to your textbooks have always worked in more ways than one. But with their new rental program, you’ll still get screwed, but it’s kinda like a phone call saying “I had fun last night” the next day. [Daily Cal [1]]

Reason the recession sucks number 392: UC endowments have dropped 20 percent in the last fiscal year. But if it makes you feel any better, Harvard’s lost over $10 billion in endowments last year, and they no longer serve breakfast [2] in their dining commons. [Daily Cal [3]]

Muni’s a little late hopping on the Twitter bus but since when has it ever been on time anyway? And they’re now “offering a free fast pass to anyone who can guess how much money the agency has lost in the last 3 years.” Uh, fun? [SF Appeal [4]]

This is the last piece of Dave Eggers news, we swear. Eggers has just revealed the identity of the McSweeney of his journal, Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern. The man was real, in fact he was a mentally ill member of Eggers’ family who recently passed away. [SFist [5]]
