The monster I created.

Due to my search for higher learning (and a place to find work writing comedy), I’ve left Miami and wound up in Manhattan. I’m officially matriculating at Fordham University, College at Lincoln Center. Which means that I will actually have work to do for the next four years! Which also means that I have to start waking up early in the morning for reasons other than just lounging around. I try to give myself about an hour every morning so that I can eat breakfast and enjoy the view of the Upper West Side. Which brings me to the subject at hand: my new battle with morning coffee. I normally don’t drink coffee, but I figured that college is a good time to develop a caffeine addiction (featuring frequent bathroom trips). And what’s an addiction without crappy drugs?

Op-ed: Jesus on the NYC Mosque

I’m really excited and honored to have my good personal friend, Jesus Christ, offer to write a post for PU. I wanted him to write about the advantages of having long hair, but instead, I let him do whatever he wanted. He is the boss after all.

Hey guys, Jesus here. I’m just here to weigh in on the issue of the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque”. Apparently, under the leadership of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, plans have been made to construct an Islamic community center (in Park51, Manhattan) containing a mosque, 500-seat auditorium, theater, performing arts center, fitness center, swimming pool, basketball court, childcare area, bookstore, culinary school, food court serving halal dishes, and Islamic prayer space for 2,000 Muslims. First off, that sounds awesome! I’m not even Muslim, and it still sounds like a great place to hang out. I’ve been meaning to get out more, and the YMCA is getting really crowded. And to tell you the truth, I’m getting a little tired of the Y, too much attention. I’d really like to meet new people, and falafel would really hit the spot after a decent pickup game of basketball. But back to the point. There’s a lot of commotion over this thing, and it hasn’t even been built yet.
