Brown University will investigate a protest that led to the cancellation of an event with New York City police commissioner Raymond Kelly to decide whether students involved should be disciplined, The New York Times reported. In a letter to campus, Brown president Christina Paxson said the protest violated the student code of conduct because it obstructed “the basic exchange of ideas,” and Paxson created a committee to evaluate the incident. Protesters, including Brown students and local residents, interrupted the speech to protest the New York City police department’s stop-and-frisk practice. Last week, a federal appeals court overruled a federal judge’s earlier decision mandating a change in this policy.

I am a television addict, so it’s only fitting that I learned the word “penultimate” from watching “Sex and the City.” In the penultimate episode of the series, Carrie is in Paris with the Russian, and everyone’s cringing because who doesn’t know that she’s supposed to be with Big. Every moment of callous rudeness on his part is just another confirmation. The penultimate, or second to last, tends to be a mess. It’s the last bit of dramatic chaos before everything gets neatly resolved for the happy ending, the peak of unhappiness before everyone rides off into the sunset.
