President Barack Obama just can’t quit his Blackberry. Even though the U.S. Commander in Chief is not allowed to have a personal cell phone, Barry has bucked the trend and kept his fingers typing away on his crackberry. But closer to home, rumor has it that our very own President David Skorton also suffers from the same cell-phone related addiction. Though most administrators have decided in favor of the iPhone, Skorton has chosen the Blackberry Bold, and we hear he has a bad case of Blackberry thumb. We got a hold of his PIN (it’s 31b0c98e, btw), and contrary to popular belief, not everything the president says sounds like a polished press release. Here’s our exclusive bbm conversation with Skorton ...
Cornell Sun: Yoooo! Back from break?
David: Totally, just got back from Qatar — was off the hook!
Cornell Sun: No way!
David: haha wayyyyy
Cornell Sun: Wet t-shirt contest?
David: You know it!
Cornell Sun: Talk about gender equality, man
Cornell Sun: haha
David: No, but seriously, Qatar was pretty cool ...
Cornell Sun: Wow, you’re really letting loose, aren’t you?
David: I mean the press office totally reads these before you do, so I’m not stressin’
Cornell Sun: Yah, but I thought Simeon and Tommy are still in cabo on that Disney Cruise ...
David: No, Tommy’s right here next to me now.
Cornell Sun: Weird, man.
David: Not so weird, man. He never leaves my side.

David: Whatevs. I g2g pedal some bonds on the street ...
