The same Texas representative that compared President Obama to Saddam Hussein is at it again! Because what could make more sense than combining the issues of gun control and abortion into one terribly offensive and unintelligent slogan?

+ The Clements Library will be closed for two years for renovations “to bring it into the 21st century.” They’ll be moving out of the building in August, so make sure you visit before then!
+ The new Hannibal show on NBC looks gross and sounds bad, but one of those things is a good thing.
+ A group of students have formed the “Mixed-Use Party” to run for Ann Arbor City Council seats on a platform of improving students’ off-campus housing experience.
+ The basketball team returns to Chrysler, everybody cries.
+ Valencia and Khan take down last week’s Viewpoint that claimed unemployed Michiganders “aren’t willing to put in the effort necessary to find and maintain gainful employment.”
+ There are zero crime notes about the rash of burning couches after Monday’s basketball game.
+ Thoughtful meets tonight at 8pm on the Red Couches of the Union!
Always, all thoughts are mine.
I wouldn’t dare speak for the

+ The Daily advocates grade inflation. Or complains about the lack thereof. It would make science courses more “accessible,” which is code for “easier As.”
+ You seem to have good intentions, but the language about people being poor because they don’t want to work or put in the effort really makes that hard to see.
+ In a confusing sentence, there seems to have been a lawsuit against the passage of Right to Work legislation. Then there was a request to dimiss the lawsuit. That request got denied, so there’s still a lawsuit. Which is good.
+ Crime Notes highlights: the report for a stolen bike seat is not fully completed, and there was/is a ‘Pre-Hash Bash’ today at about 7:10 pm, which is great because that hasn’t happened yet.
+ Highlights from the Corrections section: “An article that apperaed in the April 3 edition…incorrectly stated the purpose of pinwheels.” Look for tomorrow’s corrections, which will apologize for spelling appeared incorrectly.

+ The Daily releases their photos of the year and there is not a single one from election day/night. Maybe I’m biased but that seemed like a pretty big deal at the time.
+ CSG’s Environmental Issues Commission staged a mock oil spill on the diag on Monday. Also, chemical engineers have “totally different views” than political scientists.
+ The CSG election saga continues, but it’s important to remember that student government used to be called MSA and people got arrested.
+ Zportz: Michigan is going to Atlanta, the seniors on the team are basically useless.
+ Colonel Ronald Shun says, “you can’t be an e-mail leader,” reenforcing the idea that I would be terrible in the army.
+ Finding internships is “something very close to The Hunger Games.” No, it’s really not.
+ Crime Notes uses the word “carport.” Still wondering why crime notes aren’t on the front page.

+ forUM candidates win ALL the positions! (Mostly.)
+ But wait! Multiple complaints have been filed against forUM for allegedly coercing voters. Don’t worry though, the Election Commission has its priorities straight- they scheduled the hearing around the basketball game tonight.
+ The Daily argues against continued fracking in Michigan until there is greater oversight (so would EnviroDems). However, the Department of Environmental Quality says that it “does not support halting an activity that has been regularly used without serious incident.” Because that worked so well before.
+ A class has started the “Yellow Box Campaign” to allow students to air their deepest darkest secrets anonymously. What ever happened to good old-fashioned subtweeting?
