From a schoolwide email received the other day:
Over the weekend several students requested that they be allowed to reschedule their Monday final examinations to enable them to participate in the May 1 National Day of Action on immigration rights. After consulting with the faculty who are giving exams that day, Dean Schill has decided to permit any student who wants to participate in the National Day of Action events to reschedule his or her examination to Tuesday, May 2...
I am reminded of the old adage “the show must go on”. Scheduling around legitimate holidays is one thing. But this seems a little rich. If you want to spend your day as throngmember #35,141, great. But why should the school make accommodations for you? I mean, can’t you go join the rally in the afternoon, after the exam? There’ll probably still be space available.
You know, I really wanted to go to Coachella this year to see Depeche Mode and Massive Attack, but it was inconveniently scheduled this past weekend, during reading period. I should’ve made a bigger stink on behalf of my own special interest group, People Who Enjoy Electronic Pop In The Desert (Or Would Like To, Anyways). Why can’t the Dean feel our pain for a change?

The eagle has landed
Seduced by the dark side
You've been in law school too long when...
I have only five more class days
The lone gunman
The last spring break is over
Someone saved your life tonight
Dean Schill & the Pussymobile
Help me yet again
