No we don’t think anyone’s accusing us of arson, we just like making Billy Joel references.

Yet another fire broke out this morning at a west Berkeley art gallery, causes not yet known.

More like 'Apocalypse Snow'...After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on Earth.

You thought the weather in Berkeley has been crappy. What with that dirty tease of a sun and all that awful sprinkling? Try trudging through two feet of snow to Crossroads, which might be closed anyway because workers can’t get there, leaving you stranded food-less in your frozen jammies. Ugh. Well, at least all those East Coast schools don’t have to worry that their entire campus will collapse at any moment in an earthquake. There’s always that for us, right?
