Line drive

Dizzyhead Rachel is in the running for lede of the week:

"Sixteen students sat around a table in the Manhattan cafeteria of the New School discussing where commas should go." (NYT, Education Life, "One Generation Got Old, One Generation Got Soul")

Nice! And this deadpan reporting is pure Aviv:
One student thought the phrase “we accept all persons” should be broadened to cover animals. Another worried that the word “delineation” was alienating because “it means drawing lines, and don’t we object to lines?” The only sentence everyone seemed to support wholeheartedly was the final one: “Power to the People!”
