27 Million Slaves

Wow that’s a lot of slaves:

JUSTICE WEEK 27 Million Slaves FILM - TUES 9:30 MIN 125 PANEL - THUR 6:30 CLK 108 SEEK WORSHIP NIGHT SUN 8:30 AMPHITHEATER

This is an ad for Justice Week, which is meant to highlight the fact that human slavery still exists in our world and that we should do something about it.  Probably a good idea.

On the west side, something a little less serious — sorority initiations:

ΔΔΔ Delta Delta Delta ♥'s our New Members! CONGRATS on your initiation!!!! WE ♥ OUR 4TH YEARS TOO! WE'LL MISS YOU! ΔΔΔ Δ♥

C’mon ladies, grammar:  while Delta Delta Delta can be taken as third-person singular (referring to the sorority) and thus agrees with the verb (implied to be “loves” from “♥’s”), it is in complete disagreement with the first-person plural possessive pronoun “our.”  The statement can either be interpreted as “it (the sorority) loves our…” or “we loves our…,” both of which are clearly wrong.
