Slow News Day

The weekend before finals week isn’t exactly brimming with tantalizing news from the U of O, but here’s a few links to keep you busy:

  • Activists will be protesting David Irving’s speech tomorrow. Check out the bottom of the story for a couple good quotes from our friend Dawn Coslow (DC).
  • Mesaret Defar failed to set a world record in the 5K today at the Prefontaine Classic; Eugene girl Kara Goucher came in third.
  • The Portland Mercury has a hilarious profile on the Pink Pistols – an LGBTQ gun club. These must be the bitter gun nuts Obama was talking about. Noted for possibly the best lede ever:

“Most gun clubs are for men who like John Wayne or Charlton Heston. They’re for the pussy, football, and beer crowd,” says Pink Pistols member Steve Gilbert, as we’re taking a break from shooting on a sunny Saturday afternoon. “The difference is, we’re more for the dick, shopping, and champagne crowd.”

P.S. I disabled comments for this post because it mentions David Irving, and we don’t want those people to come back.
