Last Wednesday a Georgetown University Law student picked up the Law Weekly and read an article about an event he attended.
The unnamed second-year student saw a stack of newspapers outside of Subway and thought, “This would be a good way to procrastinate while I eat lunch.” Remembering that he had attended a school event in the past week (“I think it was the EJF auction. Wait, maybe it was the Beaudry finals. Oh, who knows.”)
Before reading the article, the student skimmed it to see if it mentioned his name. Not seeing his name on first glance, he decided that a more thorough read-through was necessary. When he finished the paragraph containing his own name, the student closed the paper and thought, “I have a ton of work to do.”
Since he hadn’t yet finished his sub, however, he quickly skimmed the rest of the Law Weekly. When he found nothing else relating to himself he put it down and actually started doing work.
Also in this week’s issue: “Pitbull: Living Legend,” page 9; “Law Center to require students to buy broccoli,” page 10; and “John Carter: Michael Chabon’s best work?” page 9.
