Institutional Wisdom Watch

Fishbowl: IS mysteriously moves machines 12 hours early, students recreate cluster in protest. When will the new car smell in Bldg. 12 go away?

Alcohol-free fraternities: Bet PDT and SN are grateful for that strict ban on bad mouthing. Best of luck for rush 2001.

Cloning: IWW looks forward to seeing its clone.

Writing requirement: Faculty attempt to pass around the blame for poorly-worded resolution. Maybe a mandatory communications requirement for faculty would help.

School spirit: Smells like MIT spirit. Please, sir, can I have some less?

Tuition hike: Perhaps President Vest would like it if his pay were kept within 1.5 percent of the average salary.

Microsoft: Browser security flaws and Word 6 viruses exploit holes in Bill's software. Maybe MIT can trade 6.033 classes for Office 97.

Weather: Make up your mind already. IWW is confused.
