Today: Mostly sunny and windy. Highs in the mid 30s.
 So what’s worse – the end of the fall semester, when it gets friggin’
cold just when finals loom…

Tonight: Clear. Lows in the low 20s.
 Or the end of the spring semester, when it starts to get really nice out
just when you don’t want to have to study for finals?  

Tomorrow: Not AS cold. Highs in the mid 40s.
 Right, I’ll ask again in May.

launched an often violent assault and caused the postponement of the

and rubber bullets. …Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl admitted
Tuesday that he had used money from secret bank accounts to help nearby
branches of his Christian Democratic Union party. …Hillary Clinton

Yorkers. …
