Say cheese

 I would like to express my genuine anticipation for my favorite dining hall season: Lenten Fridays! I am so sick of the same dining hall food week-in and week-out. I am ready for the meatless classics like grilled pizza and cheese quesadillas to make their glorious return! Even better is the fact that while I consume these creative concoctions, I will get to entertain myself with the inevitable Observer Viewpoint flame war that will ensue.

A freshman from Dillon will complain that he is Wiccan and should be able to eat meat whenever he wants. A senior from off campus who probably doesn’t even eat in the dining hall anymore will counter that Jesus didn’t eat meat on Fridays. This simple exchange will explode until it takes up both (sometimes even three!) pages of Viewpoint. There is absolutely nothing more important to discuss that this intriguing issue. Thank you, Observer!
