The Ohio State University was recently faced with a “tough” decision: to repolish or demolish.

Well, that was easy. BOMB THE SUCKER!

Lord Hall and Brown Hall are on the list of buildings to get axed, and I just received an e-mail saying they are headed for the guillotine right after summer quarter ends. The 100 year-old buildings are being canned to fit in exactly what makes a college campus beautiful–another parking lot!

(How many times have you graced the serene fields of knowledge and thought, “Why, this campus would be nothing without all of these fine parking lots! Nothing!”?)

Yup, those walls that have heard enough lectures they could probably teach one or two are being sliced up and shipped off so that even more students can continue in the subtle crime of driving from their suburban apartments to their inconveniently located college campus. (What? You mean we have to actually walk across The Oval? Why can’t they provide us with Segways?)

On the one hand, I understand. Brown Hall is vacant. But at the same time, if you’re going to pull the plug on two Historic buildings, give us something better than a parking lot and some green space!

Say goodbye while you can. The buildings will be shut down by September.
