“Doonesbury” character Alex has been deciding on which college to attend and has been accepted at Rochester Institute of Technology and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute – fictionally of course. The attention that RIT is getting has made RIT officials giddy.
R-I-T officials have been getting a kick out of the comic strip recognition. They say R-I-T would be a great choice for the fictional Alex, who holds five patents at age 18 and wants to be an engineer.
Somehow I get a kick out of the mental imagery of a bunch of suits waking up each morning in American Idol anticipation to see if their college is the one that doesn’t get voted out.
