Archie Mazmanian comments, in response to my post at http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/cambridge-con-artists-propose-move-of.html:

Your recent post triggered fond memories of Sesame Street when my kids were quite young, especially its "Schoolhouse Rock" ditties that helped prepare kids for school (and entertained parents), including "CONJUNCTION JUNCTION, WHAT'S YOUR FUNCTION?".

The Grand Junction brouhaha might be parodied with "GRAND(IOSE) JUNCTION, WHAT'S YOUR FUNCTION?". The key word is of course "FUNCTION" but that is also the mystery. This seems to be a "GRAND(IOSE)" idea but what is lacking is a vision of the "FUNCTION" and its connections.

Perhaps "GRAND(IOSE) minds at Harvard and MIT have something in mind for their institutions with trickle down benefits for us mere residents, except of course our Charles River White Geese whose gaggle would be further gagged.
