Amy Sohn Walked Away From the PSFC BDS Debate with a "renewed affection for the Coop"

Over the past week, there has been a ton of coverage on the PSFC BDS LOL ROFL NSFW debate. The Daily Show sent Samantha Bee to investigate the hullabaloo. And hey girl, even Ryan Gosling wants you to know that in the wake of the vote, everything's gonna' be A-OK. We here at FiPS even had our own insider documenting a minute-by-minute account of the evening.

Local novelist, sexy mom and FiPS friend Amy Sohn has also recounted her experience of the meeting, which she says left her feeling "impressed by the level of debate, intelligence of the speakers, surprisingly low heckle quotient, and the organizational know-how that made the proceedings go off with only a few technical glitches."

I have to admit, it's kind of refreshing to hear someone say something nice about the Coop in the aftermath of the vote to vote. I've never stepped foot inside the Coop, yet find myself constantly getting caught up in the oh-so-common digs that we take on the place. You can click on over to Amy's blog for the full account, but here's an excerpt: 

I inspected the faces, trying to guess where people stood on the issue. This was not an easy task. The suited, bearded sixtysomething man in a suit in front of me had a Brooklyn accent and reminded me of my dad but said he was in favor of a boycott. I assumed that the banged, thick-accented Argentine girl smoking cigarettes next to me was anti-boycott until she said she would vote no, but was excited to come to the meeting because she loves the democratic process. “In my country,” she said, “people just riot.”
