BoT Dysfunctionality At Its Finest
Unless you've been living like it's 1993 for the past few days, you know by now that Penn State
is set to formally announce its new president this Friday has indefinitely delayed the announcement of its new president, and now certain members of the Board of Trustees (*cough*LUBRANO*cough*) are raising hell over the manner in which the presidential selection process has been conducted. :/ <------- This is my 'shocked' face.

Well, fret no more, as the FAA has relaxed its rules on electronic device use during takeoff and landing. Please note however, you will still not be allowed to surf BSD below 10,000 feet.
