Well, for the first time Cambridge Common is actually in the Crimson, not just making fun of it or questioning it’s factual basis. Nothing much new, just a fairly reasonable accounting of this whole ridiculous Veep controversy. God knows it was a slow news day if something CC was involved in was the lead story. They’re really desperate in these slow days of finals (newsflash: students sit in library, take exams). While I think it’s good that they wrote about it to clear the air, it seems like there are other things that could have been the lead story that are maybe a little more important:
– Harvard continues to be one of the only Ivy League schools without a Women’s Center.
– Harvard continues to sub-contract every possible worker so that they don’t have to pay for benefits like medical insurance for their children.
– Harvard continues to invest in companies with holdings in the Sudan.
Oh, I could go on and on. And that’s just here at Harvard. Who else has something important that would have been a more appropriate lead story than some lying UC member trying to malign good people?
