In my last post, I noted that University of Arizona students were receiving "Deans Excuses"--officially excused absences whether an instructor likes it or not--for travel to the capitol for yesterday's protests.

It turns out that undergraduate student government president Tommy Bruce just made that part up. Shows what I get for trusting something coming from a grown man who still wants everyone to call him "Tommy".

Since my fiancée couldn't get excused absences a few years ago to visit grad schools, to get an official top-down excused absense for participation in a slogan-chanting, mindless mob would be just plain outrageous.
