1. Banning cars at the U of Michigan (a long time ago).
2. Preserving old video games.
3. Physician rediscovers integration, gets cited.
4. The Grateful Dead go to business school.
5. Texas tickets toddlers (well, not really, but I liked the alliteration). The real question is, what fraction of these tickets are given on the day of the high-stakes exams, to get bad students out of the room and thus out of the performance measure.
Hat tip on #3 to Jess Goldberg and on #5 to Dann Millimet.
