Are you really surprised?We’re being hit from all angles this weekend. HU Homecoming, Halloween, and rallies? So we’ll make this brief, because I know darn well you have other things to do, like pick up your silken Cab Calloway Zoot Suit for the Cotton Club at Marvin or dust off your corduroy blazer for that Wes Andersen “costume.” And Saturday, you’ll probably be all verklempt from the overwhelming sense of fraternity and hilarity that only a faux rally inspires. Designations of “The Best” and “The Rest” seem rather futile because NOTHING BAD can happen this weekend.
