Jon Victor is an editor at Yale Daily News. It is unclear which member of the Yale Department of Economics wrote the note.
Students elsewhere want to catch a break too:
College students at several schools have started petitions urging their universities and professors to cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral victory, citing “emotional distress.”
These include Loyola University and Bryn Mawr. Petitions refer to the hardship of dealing with precarious mental health and being “literally scared for their lives.”
Next liberal students will demand padded walls in their dormitories so they don’t hurt themselves by rhythmically banging their heads as they drool and burble.
