knock knock.. ...who's there .. your friends! but I don't have any friends!
The Vegetable Bin also features delicious local strawberries and other produce. I always go there because their prices are typically 1/2 of what you pay at the big box stores.
Wait so we were paying Pakistan a billion "anti terrorism dollars" a year to harbor Osama? I'm confused
I wish the City Paper had a like button
Mr Rogel, there are so many holes in your criticism I hardly know where to start but I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm sure the City Paper knows what it's like to be on the receiving end of criticism. Why don't you read through the comments page or sift through the comment boards here on citypaper.com that are full of criticism and belittling comments that insult the intelligence and opinions of the beloved writers. It happens several times a day, I applaud them for inspiring some critical thinking around here.
Next, drawing the line at the "psychological factors at play." Have you ever tried to put yourself in the shoes of the politicians, celebrities, and individuals who organize events on a national scale? It's unfortunate that the kids who put on Gaga day caught some flack from a few writers who's words will be seen by a couple of thousand people. Maybe they will think twice next time before they put on an event without planning for bad weather.
Flashback to 2004 when Janet Jackson flashed her nip to millions of people around the world. The entire country lashed out at her! The government threatened to increase censorship on national TV and bring down the halftime show production as well as Janet and Justin. Not only did they have to hear it from a few people in their home towns the entire country and their industry turned against them. While you were at home laughing about something outside of your perceived reality they were living life, bearing the consequences. In the end a lesson was learned and all parties emerged relatively unscathed.
Thank you Chris Haire for your non biased criticism of GaGa day and the rest of the critics picks as well. If the students want to continue the event in the future maybe they will do a better job next time. I'm so glad that City Paper writers are not afraid to provide honest feedback that might instigate positive change in the future. You go Chris, keep those kids on their toes.
People binge drink all over the world. Caffeine seems a lot tamer than a lot of other things people consume during wild nights of illicit partying. RIP 4 LOKO
