Ithaca, 24 square miles surrounded by reality.
"You mean there's a catch?" asked Yossarian.
"Sure there's a catch", Doc Daneeka replied. "Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy."
I thought it was 10 square miles. LOL.
What an idiot!
UGH! I honestly want to consider sending my children to Cornell, because we have alumni in the family and I think it would be a good fit, academically for my children- but come on!!!
I can not tolerate this radical Marxism from these people.
What college isn’t full of radical Marxism at this point?
