Besch Unilaterally Reschedules Soup
"Executive Decision" To Upend Multi-month Tradition of Midweek Potage
- Loew Hall, September 24

Exercising a little-used mandate to implement "executive decisions" at times of crisis, QERM Administrator Joanne Besch declared at 9:54 this morning that today's Soup would be canceled and shifted to Thursdays at 11:45. Citing "scheduling conflicts", Mrs. Besch suggested that this stunning upheaval of a longstanding tradition of Wednesday soup is liable to continue throughout the autumn quarter. A glimmer of hope to the traditionalist faction was given by an official statement issued from the central office stating: "We may switch back to Wednesdays winter quarter if that works better for everyone."
