Insomnia Causes Insomnia

May 6, 2011

Hear that rumbling? It's not an earthquake, it's not SEPTA, it's Insomnia Cookies. Not that I'm trying to sleep next to their truck, but isn't that an ironic name, given their constantly running generator? So, Drexel: is insomnia cookies worth a 70db engine monotone all day long? If they get this privilege, then I want free reign to set up my grunge band in the middle of Chestnut and rock out. Why, now that you mention it, I do hear that rumbling, as do many of our library users and staff members. You've probably guessed that this is an ongoing issue. Several students have complained, and the problem has come to the attention of the Dean of Libraries, Danuta Nitecki. She has asked senior staff to resolve it. So I can't tell you that the noise will cease immediately, but I can tell you that we consider this a problem, and we are working to fix it. As for your grunge band on Chestnut Street, I'm very sorry, but there is nothing I can do, other than start the mosh pit.
