My favorite part of today’s Emerald coverage:

It’s still unclear what exactly will happen at this special assembly session. The assembly, which is composed of more than 2,000 members, was disbanded in the mid 1990s in favor of a smaller legislative body, the University Faculty Senate. But after a failed attempt to condemn U.S. war efforts in Iraq at a December senate meeting, the group voted in January to call a non-binding meeting of the assembly.

So back in those halcyon days of the mid-90s, did any legislative initiative really need a thousand people voting on it just to establish a quorum? I’m deliberately trying to put the worst possible spin on things, but it’s fun to imagine.

I have an idea for a story: “Junction City Community College Enthusiastically Endorses War With Iraq.” Anyone want to do the legwork?
