Take Back NYU! and the Art of Diplomacy

My old roommate and I were talking about all this occupation insanity, and he pointed out the hysterical closer line of the NYT piece on TBNYU’s occupation of Kimmel:

About an hour after the shut-in began, Ms. Brown described it as a “peaceful” yet perplexing gathering.

“We’ll be trying to clarify the exact nature of their complaints,” Ms. Brown said, “and try to engage them in colloquy and conversation. It’s a little unclear for us now.”

That’s how foggy TBNYU’s goals are right now. This is all so very stupid.

  1. At least at MY school’s protest, we chased our prosthetic-limbed president and threw tomatoes at him!
