This morning's campus newspaper has a filler item from AP: Residents of a "senior center" in New York State are protesting a recent ban on doughnuts at the facility. In the accompanying picture, beside a demonstrater holding a neatly-printed sign that reads "We're Old Enough to Choose" stands another with a sign inscribed "We Want our Cake and Eat It Too!!" Interesting grammar.
