+ Mike Wallace passed on at 93. Not only did he work for CBS and its newsmagazine 60 Minutes for decades, he was a University of Michigan alum and wrote many news articles for the Michigan Daily. I don’t know what upsets me more, the fact that Mike Wallace died or the fact that the Michigan Daily was once THAT good of a paper.
+ SpringFest happened, and more than 50 restaurants, student clubs, and 12 year old guitarists performed. It was hosted by the group MUSIC Matters, and College Dems were well represented at the event. Unfortunately our neighbors, Students for a Sensible Drug Policy, weren’t actually there. #hashbashproblems
+ Stop the presses, because graffiti is polarizing the community.
+ Crime Notes: 5500 people attended the Hash Bash celebration, with a whopping, jaw dropping 13 arrests related to marijuana. Also a stool was stolen from South Quad. There are no suspects, but word on the street is that the two are related, with people preparing for Saturday’s festivities thinking “Yeah man, this will be, like, the greatest idea ever. Let’s, like, take a stool from like South Quad and get in the Crime Notes.”
+ In the Three Things You Should Know Today column, the Michigan Daily decides the top thing we need to know is that two deaths in Albuquerque, New Mexico have been related to mixing hand sanitizer and mouthwash to get drunk. Next, in Michigan baseball news: We beat MSU to win the weekend series.
+ In a shocker, the Daily reports that Mitt Romney is having problems courting the female vote, and by that they mean all the females except maybe Ann Romney.
+ There was a Jimmy John’s ad in the paper. Mmm, gargantuans.
