The Butt Of Future Jokes

I had to laugh when I read the article on the Gates Building [“Students Mixed on Prospect Of Building Named for Gates,” April 27]. I’m certain it’ll be the butt of jokes for years to come, as the next incarnation of that age-old question: “Why is it called the Harvard Bridge?” And it will also surely be the source of many memorable headlines in The Tech: “Gates Building Found to be Infested with Bugs,” “Problems with Windows in the Gates Building,” “Gates Building Completion Delayed until 2001/2002/200x/20xx,” etc.
