Bar passage, schadenfreude, and alternative media

I did not write about this last week, but folks around here were pretty happy when FIU pulled the highest bar passage in Florida, at 89.6 % (120 out 134). The interesting thing has been the way Miami New Times, the city's alternative weekly paper, has seized on the story as a way to take shots at the University of Miami, which finished sixth in the state, and at Ave Maria, which finished last and has generally seen its bar passage plummet since moving to southwest Florida several years ago. The paper even got in a barb about the relative success of the two football teams this year (although that is tempered by FIU's close loss at home last Saturday).

You just never know where alternative media will find pleasure.
