Professor Blazon is slated to "share the cutting edge developments in the emerging field of Imminent Doom Science (IDS)."

Winter break is about to begin on campus after one more day of finals, but a new work of 'public art' has been installed on the Chi Omega Fountain just in time for the last days of exams and will remain on display through February. KU Senior Matthew Farley's piece, "Frozen Assets," consists of around 1000 plastic water bottles arranged to mimic flowing water. “I wanted to approach the idea of a fountain and what that could mean and how it might be related to the way we consume water,” explains Farley (LJ-World.com).
Chip: "First off, Farley, a fountain is not an 'idea'. Second, I don't like the idea of 'art' tainting the sacredness of this fountain, which is known as a place where sorostitutes from the nearby houses frolic naked in the spring and occasionally fuck in, according to 'Sex on the Hill.' "
Richard: "One of my New Year's resolutions is to bang a sorostitute in that fountain in 2009."
The LJ-World website is currently offering "Top Five" lists of Larryville's major stories of the year in various categories. Number one on the list of "City Hall" stories is, of course, the passing of the sales taxes to save the T. (also included: Wakarusa's move to Arkansas and the closing of the Last Call nightclub, home to numerous gun-battles).
Richard: "I don't think it's too early to go ahead and predict the number one story of 2009: the rise in domestic hedgehog ownership."
Chip: "I agree 100%, and I fear it's only a matter of time till those hedgehogs turn on their owners in a bloody massacre that rivals Quantrill's raid."
