Why would Eastern Michigan University, aka EMU, not choose the Emu as school mascot?

An eagle?

Really?

Doubtful. Not every eff-up is part of a conspiracy. Someone changed a parameter in a job running in a schedule. I used to see it happen all the time. A * instead of a / can cause mayhem.

Who said it was a conspiracy? My point being the "poor performance" was a rung up the ladder from the student body.

I spoke to one of her classmates who is already there. She said she never got the original message, but did receive 4 different apologies.

They're so sorry because her academic performance actually is so poor that she will be getting the boot.

The accidental email only went to the _wrong_ students, not to all the students.

What's the big deal? I've had the boot put on my car plenty of times.....just have your assistant pay the fine.
