In what may be the summer’s most astounding news, The Georgetowner has printed a joint op-ed from the Burleith Citizens Association, the Citizens Association of Georgetown, the Foxhall Community Citizens Association, the Glover Park Citizens Association, and the Hillandale Homeowners Association dissing Georgetown University’s 2010 Campus Plan. In short, our parents had the moon landing, and we will always remember where we were when we heard about this astonishing op-ed.
The news developing around this event has already taken on some bizarre elements. The op-ed decries the increased enrollment of 3,400 students that the plan proposes, but does not specify whether these students will be traditional undergraduates or mostly adults enrolled in the School of Continuing Studies who already have houses in like, Virginia. (Update: Early reports from months and months ago have University officials saying that this is, indeed, the profile of those some three-thousand students. We are still standing by for a response from the BCA and CAG).
Mysteriously, the op-ed also criticizes Georgetown University for building a roof over Kehoe Field, but it is possible that in its feverish coverage of this unfathomable news, Vox has missed out on valuable information concerning the involvement of Georgetown’s field sports athletes in a conspiracy to throw disruptive parties. As for the 80-plus-foot smokestack that Georgetown intends to build over its heating and cooling plant, at this time, there is no evidence that the smokestack will negatively affect surrounding air quality, but we will inform as soon as we can verify the assumption that it will.
Walter Cronkite cried on TV when he read this op-ed.
