The pen is mightier than the sword…but is the social-networking site mightiest of all?

So, everyone on campus—or at least everyone who works for the Voice—is waiting with bated breath to see whether or not Jack DeGioia will deign to speak at GU Pride’s Coming Out Week forum tomorrow night. The prez addressed the hate crime today in a campus-wide email, saying…well, not much.

Aside from declaring that hate crimes and homophobia will not be tolerated (a no-brainer) DeGioia declined to discuss any concrete actions for preventing these incidents in the future or actually changing the campus culture. A couple of Hoyas decided to take matters into their own hands by starting a Facebook group taking Jack to task for his most recent spin-doctored missive. Sure, the group only has two members for now, but you know how fast these things grow.
