It’s Official: No More Sales of Cigarettes In The EMU

EMU Director Dusty Miller will follow through with the recommendation made by the EMU Board to ban the sale of cigarettes in Erb Essentials, the EMU convenience store. The ban is planned to go in effect in fall term.

EMU Food Services Director John Costello said the ban would cause Erb Essentials a loss of $100,000 in sales and about $25,000 in revenue.

According to the Daily Emerald article, some members of the board were concerned about the loss of income for the store, but EMU Board Chairwoman Christa Shively said it shouldn’t be a concern.

“I trust (John Costello’s) entrepreneurial skill,” she said.

One of the proposed replacements for tobacco in the store: sushi.

    There is no justice.

  2. Slade says:

    No, if he said he’s going to follow through with the reccomendation, he will.

  3. Timothy says:

    My hypothesis is that he says now that he’ll go along with the reccomendation, but really has no intention of doing so. I’ll bet that by next fall the fervor will die down and the gaggle of annoying, too skinny (mostly), maternalists who’ve been pushing this thing will shut the hell up. I can’t even begin to describe my fury. GAH!

  4. Sho says:

    Maybe this part of Dusty’s quitting process.

    “If I’m gonna go through hell then I’m taking everyone else with me!”

  5. Timothy says:

    They should sell sushi laced with cocaine.

    In reality, though, I blame Dusty Miller for losing his goddamned spine. For Christ’s sake, he’s a fucking smoker!

  6. Danimal says:

    SUSHI??? Don’t they know how much mercury is in tuna these days? How much sodium is in roe? What wasabi can do to your system if, as so many kids do, you try to snort it?

    Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
