A Happening Place

I love bulletin boards. Maybe it’s just a holdover from my university years, where campus bulletin boards were littered with provocative slogans of protest about some hot issue or another designed to shock you into “stopping and thinking”. With ads for participating in some guinea pigging in an fMRI experiment at the hospital, where for $20 you were asked to drink a chocolate milkshake while wearing electrodes on your skull. With tear-off-a-tab pages offering free djembe lessons in exchange for Hebrew tuition. With campaign propaganda promoting “David Locke: With Him, Everyone Wins”, who has promised to bring free soda machines to every classrooms near you.

In the real world, or perhaps in Oxford, it never seems that quite so much is going on. I need to find a bulletin board like this one closer to my house!
