Within hours of Gov. Corbett's Spare-The-Shale, Rod-The-Children budget proposal, the University of Pittsburgh circulated a plea for support, begging alumni and friends to pester legislators. Since the University abandoned its students during and after the G20-related siege of Oakland (left), however, some recipients might have a hard time hearing Pitt's request for help -- even if the University used a military-grade sonic cannon (like the one used on Pitt students without objection from Mark Nordenberg).
Aside: Is there no one left in the English Department who could have proofread a message circulated among alumni, some of whom learned the language before Pitt abridged its writing program?
