  1. 9. Get realistic or reasonable cable prices

    Any reason why Georgetown switched to RCN anyway? The old cable was fine, and much cheaper. For the same price as cable last year, we only get ~40 channels (35 of which are MHZ and public access…).

  2. “5. Keep GUSA from completely overrunning the funding process”

    Hey Molly, can we add “actually become informed on this issue instead of continuing to fear-monger?”

  3. “4. Stand up to the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (starting with 2010 Campus Plan)”

    Would it be worth trying to get back the second Georgetown student seat on the ANC? I don’t know if anyone has does the numbers, but it doesn’t seem like there are enough students gerrymandered into the other single-member districts to make much of a difference in those contests, whereas two voices on the Commission would at least get the students more air time…

  4. @John: Was there ever a second Georgetown student seat on the ANC? I’d be interested in hearing about that.

    Also, where is, “Stop the secret Jesuit conspiracy to rule the world and bring Jack DeGioia to power as Papist Overlord of North America”? That seems like it would top my list, at least.

  5. @JS:

    That’s incredibly interesting reading; thank you. It’s a shame that the ANC has since gerrymandered Georgetown students into largely one district.

    It’s a uniquely difficult situation, coming from D.C. At least in other states, there are presumably enough people from the state itself to constitute a decent voting block. Here, almost everyone has to switch voter registration — especially difficult with such a politically active campus given that DC is a practical non-entity in voting power.
