A student filmmaker at Virginia Tech reports that the campus won’t allow fake weapons to be used in movies being shot for classes there–“because they might be misperceived by passersby.” The student also says that anyone on campus who produces content thought of as “alarming” is likely to wind up in the Dean’s office. The campus apparently thinks movies (specifically Korea’s “Old Boy”) are to blame for last year’s shootings.

This week the legendary Yale campus diner The Yankee Doodle, aka “The Doodle,” apparently served up its last round of artery-assaulters. I think I only ate there once. I ate 99.9 percent of my meals in the dining hall because I couldn’t afford to squander $2 on a snack anywhere else. Pizza slices at a place across Broadway from the Doodle were 99 cents and it took me until senior year to carefully come to accept that maybe I could possibly afford one of those once in a while, if I didn’t push it.
