Then Physical Plant had to reschedule a contracted electrical shutdown from tomorrow to today at 5 p.m. lest half our membership get stranded in the Third Floor rec room or stumble along darkened stairwells following Michaelmas.
Now it remains to be seen how many members, especially Brothers, will show up.
This once again underscores the chronic need for a campus-wide online calendar that everyone can access to post activities and check out availability and avoid scheduling conflicts. Department heads have such a calendar, but us simple peons need this too. This whole brouhaha with the Brothers' feast day, the funeral and the scheduled electrical shutdown could have been prevented.
Also coming up this week: Fr. Miguel D'Escoto will speak to the community at a special gathering on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. in the Founders Room about his last year serving as the president of the U.N. General Assembly.
