From yesterday's NYT...

Sign up to ride the 7 Hills of Kirkland this May!
The month long cycling event takes place this May, with ride challenges, prizes from Zoka Coffee and Primal Wear, and funds raised benefiting Attain Housing.

...a growing number of colleges putting out a welcome mat for pets. They include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the State University of New York at Canton, which allow cats in some dorm rooms; and Eckerd College in South Florida and Washington & Jefferson College in Pennsylvania, which set aside rooms for students with dogs or cats and others who love animals so much they just want to live near them.

But someone who wants to love or live near his pit bull—or his rottweiler or wolf—can't go to Washington & Jefferson. From the sidebar:

Washington & Jefferson College

“Dogs may not exceed 40 pounds in weight when fully grown. Pit bulls, Rottweilers and wolf breeds, or any mix combining these, are not allowed on campus at any time.”

This is an outrage. It's exactly like the Nuremburg laws only this time, like, they're going after dogs and not Jews. Contact info for W&J is here. Lovers of pit bulls and justice are encouraged to give those bigots at W&J a piece of their minds.
