But Allentown was still getting hit pretty hard, so the campus was a mess. And so it was cancelled last night as well. Let's pause for a moment and realize...

But since we missed those last two days, there is just a little bit of crunch going into this weekend. It's nothing that we, and our fearless director, can't handle. Given enough cigarettes and coffee...
