What We're Reading...How To Be A Good Roommate

We are now two weeks into the semester and some of us may still be getting to know our roommates. Last week, the blog The Art of Manliness posted a quiz from a 1947 men's magazine titled "Are You a Good Roommate?" Questions include "Do you gossip continually about other people," "Do you play the radio or phonograph continuously," and "Do you monopolize the morning paper?" We were surprised to find that the criteria for being a good roommate really hasn't changed in the last sixty years.
