empty lecture hall

Nothing like some Swift-style irony to make light of a half-way calamitous situation. In this smirk, maybe chuckle inducing article, Steven Clifford ponders the ultimate cure-all for Berkeley’s budget woes: just get rid of us, and let our highly esteemed faculty carry on their academia without the pesky burden of, you know, teaching. A faculty:student ratio of infinity does entice. If the prospect of a more expensive semester has got you down, we suggest you take delight in this.

As the Men’s Octet began singing, this flyer was handed to us by someone trying to make an (ironically humorous) statement … we think. In the process of hating on Sather Gate, the protesters blocked access to the gate itself. Nice.

To note: the Wingdings message is gibberish, so don’t bother. Also, the Website doesn’t exist either. And is the misspelling of “their” intentional?
