Your favorite news story of the year
It’s late. You’re up. The harsh reality of school and actual homework is probably starting to sink in right about now, but it’s all good because Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus came early and a wonderful/annoying gift has arrived: US News & World Report!
Rankings: So we’re tied with University of Chicago (Yeah, I almost went there, too) for fourth place again this year, right behind Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. Nobody? Yeah.
Harvard is tied for first, although we can’t help but wonder how they managed that…
Atlantis: New York City subways may eventually be underwater if the city doesn’t act, and by 2080 30% of our streets could lie in the flood risk zone. This is especially sad since the 2nd Avenue subway should be done by then.
Credit: Moody’s says they will likely cut the US’s credit rating by one notch if a budget deal isn’t reached. But why are we listening to them anyway when freecreditreport.com gives us both our score and a catchy tune to boot?
