Cutting Class Results
Thursday, March 06, 2003
Well, yesterday was the day when people were supposed to cut class to support Saddam. Newsday reports that "nearly 100" people attended a rally that day.
In the style of James Taranto, let's run those numbers:
Actually, I'm not sure if it's actually correct to claim that 0.45% of students were protesting. The Newsday article claimed "nearly" 100 protesters, which implies less than 100, and two of the people mentioned as attending in the article were sociology professors, not students.
(Is it just me, or is there something wrong with a professor encouraging students to cut class?)
