A Nudge reader sends along word that the Naval Academy is updating its honor system, which must be voted on by the Midshipmen. To make sure the new code passes, the Academy’s Honor Congress is using the default yes vote. The vote is being held for each class at specific times. In an email to Midshipmen, the Honor Congress informs them, “If you do not show up to the wardroom vote or email me, your vote will be counted as a “YES” in favor of the revisions by default.”
Members of the Los Angeles City Council would be so proud.
