As you, our loyal readers, have surely noticed, the Mat Sci blog has been pretty sparse the past 3 months. This can largely be blamed on MSSA President Emily Hoffman’s policy of blocking the free press in favor of her own propaganda filled government run media. Luckily, we have persevered and overcome the tyrannical MSSA policy. It’s a new year and we promise to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the department…probably.
There have been quite a few events that have been missed in the blogs downtime… including but not limited to:
Thanksgiving- People ate turkey
Hanukkah-People ate kugel
Christmas-People ate gingerbread cookies
Presidential Election-People became either inconsolably depressed or ecstatically happy
New Years- Ball dropped while people danced
Super Bowl- Some team from the east coast won
Cultural Food Potluck-Presumably multicultural food was eaten
Board Game Night- Games utilizing boards were played
Oh…and Mike Rawlings got a hair cut
I think we're all caught up now.

|MSSA President Emily Hoffman is very sad.|
|The first-years (and George) are not amused|
As we try to put back the pieces and move on with our lives we can only hope that the lessons of this day will be remembered lest the past repeat itself, inflicting immeasurable frustration and despair on future generations of graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff.

Cats have long been discriminated against in pursuits of public office. A cat has never been elected to the presidency of the United States or even assumed a cabinet position. 15 years ago, Talkeetna, Alaska was the first town in the U.S. to elect a cat to official office. Mayor Stubbs, a true civil rights leader in the feline community overcame great adversity to become mayor where he has been successfully reelected multiple times. "It's a true shame in this day and age that a cat running for Senate must prove himself not based on the merit of his work but on the basis of his fur"-Mayor Stubbs.
Hank, unfortunately came in 3rd however he has great hope for the future. "A few years ago, people would think you were crazy to elect a cat to a Senate seat, and look how far we've come now. I'm confident that I will achieve my dream of being elected to a political office."-Hank the Cat
