It is equally the prerogative of any Senator to oppose the consideration or passage of such a motion.

I think that’s true if you mean there’s a policy against spending money on cameras. There can easily be cameras in residence halls without invading privacy. They can be in lobbies, entryways, exits, and stairwells. As long as they are not viewing the living space (and the space that surrounds it), I would think most people would be comfortable that their privacy is being respected.

GUSA did talk about last years vote…but also discussed voting again next week. As I understand it more plans have since been created to indeed have this vote. My comments reflect such a scenario.

They’d work even better at Georgetown because there is no court system to tell you that you have to stop. You seem to be looking for this cuddler, who indeed seems like an evildoer, so in the words of my good friend Donnie your problem is a known unknown. You know that you do not know who the cuddler is. If you have cameras, you might accidentally stumble across unknown unknowns. The unknown unknowns will then become known unknowns, because now you know them. These now known unknowns may even become known knowns, if you later find out what was originally unknown. However, the effort wasted to turn this new known unknown into a known known will waste precious time and resources. It’s also confusing when unknown unknowns become known unknowns, because you may run out of room on your known vs unknown grid to keep track of them, which is always a bad thing.

The first step you need to take is to stop with all this accountability and openness nonsense. The wiretaps and hidden cameras don’t work if the people you’re spying on know that they need to hide things. Everything needs to be secret, especially your known vs unknown chart. I keep mine hidden in my hunting jacket and shoot anything that gets too close to it.

The Senate took no action on the diversity requirement, we simply discussed a vote of last year’s Senate regarding a very similar issue.

Just be prepared to be out of touch with the campus community yet again. GUSA not only has appointed a student to the committee that they are now not in support of..but has decided to take up this vote without even reading the document or its rationale. Good representation.

Pun most definitely intended.

Or not.

This is a great victory for democracy inaction.
