Apr 6th, 2009 | By | Category: Commentary

Zach Becker Editor-in-Chief I lost my job. My friends betrayed me. And I couldn’t participate in my favorite (and only) activity. To top it off, they keyed my just-repainted truck.

Zach Becker Editor-in-Chief Cut the crap. They use bears, puppies, royalty, clouds and even babies, but is all this squatting around the subject really necessary?

Nathanael Edward Bassett Contributor You probably have some questions about the newspaper in your hand (or the website you are reading from). Like, what is this? What’s the point? Why should I read it? Well, I’ll try and answer those as best I can if you just give me a few moments. First of all, […]
