The Week contest: No views
This week's question: A proposed $1.5 billion dormitory at the University of California at Santa Barbara, designed by billionaire investor Charlie Munger, is being compared to an 11-story prison because 94 percent of the tiny rooms have no windows. In seven words or fewer, please come up with a snappy slogan to persuade students to move into "Dormzilla."
