Best Deep Throat Coverage

From the always funny Roundup:

In other news, the sport of politics got a little less fun yesterday when it was revealed that former G-Man W. Mark Felt is indeed Deep Throat, thus ending American Politics' greatest parlor game. In other news, Rosebud is a sled, Darth Vader really is Luke's father, and that chick from The Crying Game is really a man. Good to know that Felt was forced out of his anonymity by his cash hungry family, eager to cash in on the stroke victim's secret before Woodward gets to hog the limelight after Felt's death.
My sources also tell me that Felt's grandson is a Hastings 1L (now 2L) who is much better spoken at the lectern than in lecture. Go Sharks. (Yes, that really is our mascot.)

He is a Hastings 1L? Damn, and me without my facebook. What is his name?

Uh, Deep Throat, III?


"Mr. Felt's grandson Nick Jones, a 23-year-old law student, read a statement on his family's behalf on Tuesday . . ."

What is next:

Who killed Kennedy?

Roswell and Area 59?

Is DB Cooper still alive?

Jessica Simpson's boobs; real or fake?

I think that's Area 51 . . . .

Other burning questions still remain, too:

-Lindsey Lohan: blow or mere anorexia?
-Elvis: dead or alive?
-Who killed Laura Palmer (wait, we know that)
-Tastes great or less filling?

Why the hell does Hastings need a mascot? And is it an official mascot? McGeorge is the Tigers, but that's only because we're affiliated with an under grad university too.

Funny story - from what I've heard, a few years back, the students decided to do something to piss of the trustees or whomever, and chose themselves what they thought was a stereotypical, negative mascot. But the grown-ups LOVED it. Whoops. Not many Hastings students know we even have a mascot (and their curiosity has never been piqued as to why there is a large inflatable shark in the bookstore, or shart magnets, etc).

Personally, I'm all for school spirit-y things - even though any hope I had for Hastings spirit has pretty much been beat the hell out of me now. The admin at my fair law school seems hellbent on discouraging student involvement or even interest. So I'm done trying.
