A diamond: “I have to say that until I started visiting Mr. Frank, I had never had Jägermeister or Grey Goose,” (formerly teetotaling President Ruth) Simmons said. “Since my first visit to him, I have become an avid consumer of both.”
Coal to the pie-in-the-sky suggestion that if UCS campaigned for wireless access in the dorms, it would happen. Prove it.
Please be advised this is the final Carbonized Fossil and Diamonds & Coal for this semester. See you in January!
Coal to the state of Kentucky for excising the word “evolution” from science textbooks. Give Ross Geller a half hour with the state school board and he’ll show them what’s what.
Alleged coal to Thefacebook.com’s theft of code from ConnectU.com. At least it’s further proof that Harvard students cheat.

A diamond to bean tacos from Gordito Burrito. Hurray for a full meal for just $1.75. But coal to the Ratty’s “French taco sandwich,” which just sounds dirty.
Retro-style “Diamonds and Coal” from The Herald’s issue on February 27, 1998:
A diamond to El Nino. Sure, it’s nice to have some warm weather. But killing those helpless Floridians. That’s just wrong!
Retro-style “Diamonds and Coal” from The Herald’s issue on October 13, 2006:
A cubic zirconium to Sen. Barack Obama, who spoke to a filled-to-capacity Salomon last night. We appreciate his delivering a heartfelt speech after sitting in four hours of I-95 rush-hour traffic, but if you’re going to show up late, you should at least quote Abraham Lincoln correctly — we’re pretty sure a house divided can fall just fine.
Retro-style “Diamonds and Coal” from The Herald‘s issue on February 11, 2000:
A diamond to John McCain, who is suddenly the most popular presidential candidate in the running. On the covers of Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News and World Report this week, he’s got W. shaking in his boots.
