Closest thing we have to "foodies" on campus.

As part of its ongoing, invaluable service to the University, our daily newspaper ran an opinion column today that included the following assertion about campus dining: "The problem with West Campus, however, is that there is no internal logic to the dining options. This is another instance of our culture fundamentally misunderstanding the nature of human freedom." Translation: I just learned about the Enlightenment in my Philosophy class, and now I know how to run a university!

The real startling thing about human freedom is that at fifty thousand dollars a year, he felt free to spend his time publishing an observation like that.
