For God, for country, Forelle. This afternoon, the Yale Economic Review will join us in hosting Charles Forelle ’02, a former managing editor of the News, for a discussion on Europe’s economic future. Thanks to Forelle’s work on “The Perfect Payday” and “How the Journal Analyzed Stock-Option Grants” the Wall Street Journal won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. All hail.
“Zombies can’t swim.” Speaking of economics, yesterday’s Intro Macro lecture — given by professor Aleh Tsyvinski — included a slide full of survival tips in the event of a zombie apocalypse.

But to keep things serious, AASA plans to close tonight’s event, at their Crown Street location, with a conversation about the show’s handling of larger social issues.
E-I-E-I-O. You probably got the campus-wide email, but applications to become a Harvest leader are due today. Sign us up if life on a farm is anything like country music makes it out to be.
This Yale team’s good. Yesterday’s USCHO.com Div.-I Men’s Hockey Poll slotted Yale at 15th in the country, immediately behind Quinnipiac and Harvard, who have beaten the Elis a total of zero combined times this year.
This one’s… getting there. Meanwhile, Baseball America’s season preview of the Ancient Eight showed little love for the Bulldog boys of summer. 2015’s team to beat? Penn and its top-flight pitching staff.
Back for more. The official Senior Class Council album from Masquerade’s photo booth went up last night, in case you hadn’t already gotten your fill of seniors prancing around in masks and things.
