ConCon Mondays in April

In this instance, ConCon isn't shorthand for Constitutional Convention but for Consecutive Conservative Mondays in—wait for it—deep-blue Ithaca, NY.

 

 

There have been reports of pigs circling McGraw Tower.

 

 

The Cornell College Republicans are sponsoring a series entitled "American Voices" with a lineup of notable speakers on three consecutive Mondays in April:

  • Monday, April 8   S.E Cupp, Cornell class of 2000, 6:00pm in McGraw Hall 165. Topic: the liberal media
  • Monday, April 15   Rep. Tom Tancredo, 6:00pm in HEC Auditorium in Goldwin Smith Hall. Topic: immigration & national identity 
  • Monday, April 22   Herman Cain, 8:00pm in Call Auditorium, Kennedy Hall. Topic: the American Dream & free enterprise
A map of campus can be found here. McGraw and Goldwin Smith Halls are on the Arts Quad; Kennedy Hall is on the Ag Quad, at the corner of Garden Ave. and Tower Rd.

For more information about the series, contact the president of the Cornell College Republicans, Jess Reif, at jar453@cornell.edu or (630) 863-3773.
 
Let's have a great turnout for these dynamite speakers and demonstrate that conservatism of all stripes is alive and well in Tompkins County and environs and—yea, verily—even on the Cornell campus.
 

Facts? What facts? This is Ithaca.

I wonder how many Pinocchios this article at the fishwrap of record about transient drill rig roughnecks Cornell students engaging in underage drinking got?

This many, ya think?

I give the editor credit—rather than take down the article, he left it there to stink:

Editors' Note: September 28, 2012
 
An article on Thursday described the effect of social media use on the bar scene in several college towns, including the area around Cornell. After the article was published, questions were raised by the blog IvyGate about the identities of six Cornell students quoted in the article or shown in an accompanying photo.

None of the names provided by those students to a reporter and photographer for The Times — Michelle Guida, Vanessa Gilen, Tracy O’Hara, John Montana, David Lieberman and Ben Johnson — match listings in the Cornell student directory, and The Times has not subsequently been able to contact anyone by those names. The Times should have worked to verify the students’ identities independently before quoting or picturing them for the article.

Via Newsbusters, where it was pointed out that the author of the article at the NYT "...had not considered at the time that the students could be lying."

And I love the dry remark at Instapundit:

Always remember,  these people are trustworthy, unlike those bloggers working in their pajamas.
