QuickHits for Oct. 1

Late-night Union

Neutral thumb

Word is that campus officials are bringing a 24-hour fast food
restaurant to the bottom of the Union. This is good progress. But fast food? So much for doing away with the Freshman 15. 

ECU 'protest'

Thumbs down

Student leaders organized a protest but when no one showed, they denied it. Hey, ECU: At least when we protest, we show up and do damage to our buildings and our national reputation.

Homeless doll

Thumbs down

The American Girl doll series has a new model: “Homeless” Gwen. At $95, she’s not cheap. She’s probably homeless because she defaulted on her sub-prime loan and foreclosed on her accessory house.

Tufts sexiling

Thumbs down

Tufts has introduced a policy banning any sex act when a
roommate is present. This policy is misguided. College is about inclusion and sharing experiences. Why not oblige the roommate to join in? 

Empire State

Thumbs down

The Empire State building turned red recently for the 60th anniversary of the founding of Communist China. Really, NYC? We know the Chinese government owns half of you. But come on.

Windy City Olympics

Thumbs up

First Lady Michelle Obama is in Copenhagen to build support for Chicago’s 2016 Summer Olympics bid. We’re glad that former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich won’t be there to take bribes for medals.
