Quick NYU update

Item: The strike is still on, though GSOC and the university disagree about how many GAs are out. For what it's worth, it seems to me that there are clearly enough grads striking that it's creating problems for the university. (I found that Inside Higher Ed link through Zach's blog)

Item: Sexton needs to look up the definition of deadline.

Item: The folks at Nerds on Strike! are reporting that the NYU administration has demanded that campus mail truck drivers stop honking in solidarity with the picketers and has ordered campus security guards not to smile at, talk with, or otherwise acknowledge the strikers.

Item: The latest GSOC Strike Journal carries the news that The Nation magazine has donated a full page ad to the struggle. The ad will carry the text of the Judith Butler letter that heads up the Scholars in support of GSOC petition.
