Friday Review of Stuff
Places near campus that serve truly wretched mochas:
- The Thai cafeteria place on Bancroft, just north of Telegraph. It has some sort of name, a very generic sort; they pour the Hershey’s syrup into your coffee while you watch, not even pretending that the word “mocha” has ever implied the kiss of real chocolate. It’s not that places which serve perfectly legitimate mochas don’t also use Hershey’s syrup, but most such places have enough self-respect to pretend otherwise.
- Unfortunately, the pastry shop on the corner of Hearst and Euclid. Though I hear they have good Thai coffee.
Also, I hear from my darling friend R. that the YDA Women’s Caucus needs a new web site. Internetty feminist revolutionaries, this is your chance to infiltrate the mainstream political establishment! Like it or not, the Young Dems serve as a grooming ground for tomorrow’s bullshit internal party politics (a.k.a. “leadership”), so it behooves us all to make sure it’s not just replicating the same old Old Boys.
There’s no cash money salary available for this, but that’s life, ain’t it? Perhaps the enhanced portfolio-ness will be useful. Interested parties should email Jill Habig (jhabig – – – gmail.com)
