Dean Fisher Can't Retire Soon Enough - Or Water Water, not Everywhere

The cover of the DA is today emblazoned with the kind of story that'll get our law school mocked throughout the country. The building is being remodeled/redecorated, and the new rule is you can't take any drink into the redone classrooms - including water. This is stupid, hazardous to health, and really ... who the hell is going to enforce such nonsense? Oh, but it gets better. There are exceptions - at least in the library. There you can't take a bottle of water - but you can take a thermos (filled with coffee or sticky soft drinks or whatever) emblazoned with a logo that the school's made some money on. WVU or Westlaw or whatever. I hope the current dean rescinds this immediately (and so brave he is, leaving the associate dean to defend this inane policy), and if not that his successor changes it. I mean what a great way to make students succeed in law school - deny them hydration!

In other local news, there's another sandwich shop downtown. Great. That makes what 87? 88? And yet we still lack a diner, a donut shop, and a place to get pancakes? Local entrepeneurs are lame (and missing a goldmine or two).

You beat me to it... I was going to do this later.

First, it doesn't have to have the WVU logo. It says that in the photo caption. Second, if they want to stop stains, why don't they ban pens?

Plus, that sandwich shop has been there awhile.

Ah, the DA - living down to its usual quality. :(
