Truth Is Stranger Than Brandeis

Here we go: which of these is a real headline from the The Justice (Brandeis' student newspaper), and which one did I make up? (answer after the jump):

- "Why a Brandeis Prof. is tricking flies into being bisexual"

- "Alum resigns campaign manager post in Wikipedia debacle"

- "Prince not worthy of addressing grads"*

- "Brandeis a testament to those murdered by Nazis"

- "Every person at Brandeis is a feminist"

- Letter: "Brandeis' classes are 'too Jewish,' not the University"

- Letter: "Womens' Month Unfair to Women"

- Letter: '"'Jewish article' unintelligent and extremely flawed"

- Letter: "Cartoonist is 'heroic' in his mockery of Old Navy"

Answer: It's the womens' month one. But I'll bet you had to look.

*- The "prince not worthy" headline is in reference to Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan, who admittedly is an extremely suspect choice to speak at Brandeis commencement. It is not a reference to Prince himself, who I would say is very worthy.

Among the other honorary degree recipients? You guessed it, Tony Kushner. I assumed they must have honored him years ago.

Haven't had a chance to read the articles yet, but this one: - "Why a Brandeis Prof. is tricking flies into being bisexual" stands out.

I'm predicting a rather naive article by the person writing for the Justice--and perhaps an attempt to play politics with science.

I had Prof Hall for a neurogenetics course Senior year......very, very interesting man to say the least (and I'm implying some sarcasm). Also a brilliant man at the same time.

Yey! I picked the right one. *does a little dance* Pretty funny stuff.

Is that the Same Professor Hall who taught the Gettysburg class in the History department?
I liked him, although taking the oral portion of my final in his lab surrounded by his dogs (all of whose names began with the letter Z) was a bit odd to say the least.
