8/3/2017 update: 

That’s not a rumor, it’s a fact. Meanwhile, reports from staff survivors are that the inside temperature hit 92 an hour ago.

8/19/2016: Faculty Union to sue university over cruel and inhumane lack of AC in PLC

The NYT has the story here. Just kidding about the faculty union, it’s about Louisiana inmates suing the State Department of Corrections. Interestingly, Texas law requires jails be kept between 65 and 85 degrees. (Fahrenheit, I hope.)

Here in PLC, the administration has dealt with the heat problem with this list of helpful suggestions, including “sit forward in your chair instead of leaning against the backrest” and “wipe your face, neck and arms with cool water”:

    “heat emergency”? Hyperbole, maybe just a little?

    actually I think this is more serious than this claim

    without AC – working conditions in the upper levels of PLC – including some classrooms, are inhumane during these conditions. We are asking the state for hundreds of millions of dollars for one part of campus and can’t provide relief from this other part of campus and the need for relief is now at least 30 years old.

    If you think its hyperbole, please come up to the 7th floor in PLC and hang out – hell I will even open a window for you …

    not even dogs can take this fucking interior heat
