We were pretty consumed with all the talk about Milstein last week, but when someone mentioned that there were flags on the Arts Quad, we perked up — everybody loves a good news story.

In lieu of the much needed director, office manager and assistant dean for the LGBTQ community and resource center, a group of disgruntled students hoisted one lonely rainbow flag — representing the measly one person needed! — on the top of the clock tower.
It was a busy weekend — gift, card, flowers, dry cleaning, appetizer, wine, dinner, drinks, dessert, champaign, taxi, bars, condoms — during which much money was spent. After an exciting, but altogether expensive Valentine’s Day, a rampage of romeos pinned five flags onto Ho Plaza: one flag for every dollar left in their pockets after the expensive weekend.
