Down with Tosci’s!

I for one am glad to see that Toscanini’s will be leaving the MIT community [“Tosci’s Could Close Student Center Shop,” Oct. 31]. As a devout disciple of Aramark, I view such institutions as Tosci’s and the defunct Newbury Comics as threats to the malnourished nerd solidarity that fuels our futures.

In this, the latest attempt to eradicate dairy products and new music from our campus, nothing will stand in the way of our knowing only Moxy Fruvous and the new “Courses.” Why lose money from lowered rent when we can do the same by evicting the hippies?

Some may call this strategy “stupid.” I call it “punk-rock.” Down with raver hipster coffee, yay for “foo.”
