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

* Sarah Silverman tells Jewish grandkids to schlep to their bubbie’s Florida home in the name of Barack Obama while the Cal Patriot blog tells the media to lay off Sarah Palin.

* The Daily Cal asks real, honest-to-goodness students which presidential candidate would handle the economy better. (What, no LaRouche cult kids?)

* Berkeley NOW has the hots for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in the newest “SNL” Palin sketch.

* And, last but certainly not least, even our readers get into the mix.

On Thursday the National Organization of Women hosts the Women in Academia panel. A group of women, including professors, a grad student, a researcher and a provost, will discuss issues facing women in academia. NOW bills the event as a way to explore

why barriers “still exist to the full participation of women, not only in science and engineering, but also in academic fields throughout higher education.”

The event looks promising, plus we hear there’ll be Chipotle. Ladies repping and free bougie burritos? We’re so there.

When: Thursday 6 p.m. (will last about two hours)
Where: 20 Barrows
