Skip to comments.MOST INCREDIBLE STORY OF RESILIENCE EVER TO GRACE THE NYT

One day in the foreseeable future, high school students will no longer read Elie Wiesel's Night to learn of the incredible bounds of human resilience. They will instead read the memoir of Vanessa Csordas-Jenkins. They will read, and they will be inspired. Who is Vanessa Csordas-Jenkins, you might ask? Only the subject of the most harrowing story you will ever read in the New York Times. Csordas-Jenkins suffered indignities that no human being should ever have to suffer. And she did so with grace and dignity that only [can] be described as vintage Csordas-Jenkins.
Our story begins with Ms. Csordas-Jenkins, a junior at NYU, relegated to slumming it in a dorm building because her plans to live off campus with friends in trendy Brooklyn fell through. That alone would be enough to stop most sane people in their tracks. But she soldiered on. Unfortunately, the dorm was too noisy for her liking because she "needs to be a healthy person." So she fled those inhumane conditions. It was the moral equivalent of fleeing the gulag.

It’s the NYT - they might have just straight out made the story up.
At least she doesn’t have to pay for condoms.
You and I get to do that part.
Didn’t read far into the article before hurling.
What was her major?
(As if I even need to ask.)
It's pretty sad that people that see pink elephants most of the time have better cognitive abilities than students that have time to be wildly indignant about nearly everything.
Well, hopefully at least she didn’t have to buy her own condoms!

I think we may need to rethink paying for “liberals” birth control. Think of the heartache and headaches our children will avoid if less liberals in this country.
Aren't the ones who stayed behind in the "gulag" the REAL heroes???
Surely the writer is poking fun and dripping with sarcasm.
Remember how that Li’l Abner comic strip adventure ended? The University sold out to the MOB, they brought in “enforcers” with brass knuckles and made believers out of the students. One of Al Capp’s drawings showed the moment the brass fist hit the hippie front tooth.
Peace reigned on the campus as the students went to class in fear.
I had forgotten that. Problem is, once having paid the Dane-Geld, you can’t get rid of the Dane!
