Daily Kent Stater’s Hump Day cheers and jeers

DKS Editors

Cheers to

• AlphaMicron for offering at least a little hope for an economic recovery in the Rust Belt.

• Parking Services for installing new parking meters that accept cash and credit cards.

• The Kent State football players who will be stepping in to replace injured senior running back Eugene Jarvis. Forget the pressure and focus on the opportunity.

Jeers to

• Kanye West for rudely interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. Cheap publicity or not, that’s just disrespectful.

• Rep. Joe Wilson, another rude interrupter, who shouted “you lie” at President Barack Obama during his health care speech last week.

• Students who cheat on tests and plagiarize papers, forcing administrators to constantly discuss ways to deal with acts of dishonesty.
