Last Monday, Vox published its standard GUSA roundup, recapping the goings on at the weekly GUSA Senate meetings that took place the previous day. Our post provoked a pleasantly amusing string of comments from GUSA types, concerning a relatively confusing bill about e-readers and other such technological things that senators Ziad Jawadi (COL ’15) and Daniel LaMagna (COL ’13) had introduced.
Vice Speaker Nate Tisa (SFS ’14) said:
Ultimately, I just really wish I had an iPad.
Jawadi gave us an update on the next, supposedly stronger iteration of the resolution, which has a much shorter but still very long title (spoiler alert: it failed on the senate floor yesterday):
Fun Fact: The Resolution 2.0 (ahahah get it? DJ LaMagnz came up with that…) has a new title that is only 16 words long now! Almost 1/7th the first one!! But no seriously, we revamped it and it is now a much stronger bill. The Senate ought to pass this unanimously.
Meanwhile, #coherenceappreciated raised the stakes considerably:
If Georgetown doesn’t adopt a serious policy about electronic textbooks then the University will go down in apocalyptic fire.
ATalbot appreciates a Vox assistant editor’s appreciation for Talbotisms:
Ryan Bellmore is the only human being on earth who gets me.
There will be those that do not concur with my proposed notions nor appreciate my conclusions, but I will tolerate such nonsensical and foolish abhorrence of my beliefs for there will always be those that do not see eye to eye with my beliefs. In summation, haters gonna hate.
