Do You Ever Just Miss a Deadline and then Sue Someone Else?
A guy is suing Duke because he didn’t take the LSAT and was thus not admitted to Duke’s law school. Fortunately, we’re in good company, since he’s also suing a bunch of other law schools, state bar associations, and Betsy DeVos. Okay, so not really good company, but we’re not alone. The would-be lawyer is requesting over $1,000,000 from each defendant, and also that he be admitted tuition-free. The complaint submitted to the courts is, for some reason, in memory of Eleanor Roosevelt. I’m sure she’d be thrilled.
Giving Your Green to Get You To Go Green
DSG supported a resolution to institute a 25-cent fee. “A FEE?” you may be screaming. “HASN’T THIS UNIVERSITY ALREADY TAKEN ENOUGH FROM ME?” Okay, maybe that’s just me yelling that, but anyway, the fee will be for taking to-go containers from food vendors. This fee does seem to penalize the socially awkward, who flee the dining hall to eat alone in like, the library or the, uh, Chronicle office, but generally seems like a good idea. No word yet on what they’ll do when people just start stealing and then throwing away the bowls from West Union, which I absolutely guarantee will happen because people here are the way that they are.
Turns Out, Hurricanes Are Bad and Not Just Fun
So, while y’all were on your hurricane vacations, the state kind of went to hell in a handbasket. Because of the hurricane. Governor Cooper, who I have previously referred to as our State Dad, addressed the state on Monday. The storm has killed people, roads are flooded out, more than 14,000 people had to evacuate their homes and 84,000 still don’t have power. Perhaps consider donating, oh, I don’t know, the cost of a plane ticket to New York toward relief efforts?
