So let’s review how my soon-to-be-Alma Mater, the University of Idaho, has earned national media coverage in the last couple months:
- U of I scientists discover the allegedly giant Palouse earthworm is actually about eight inches long.
- This American Life helps a stutter-prone U of I student send a message to the jerks at the local Pizza Pipeline. In a rerun. From 2002.*
* And TAL refers to the student as going to Idaho State, which is located not in Moscow, where the Pizza Pipeline is said to be (and there is one here), but in Pocatello, at the other end of the state. Which is confusing, and additionally vexing given that no one has bothered to correct the discrepancy since 2002.
