Good News and Bad News

Okay, the good news is that the new issue is done and it’s been sent off to Web Press. It’s not on the website because Jeremy and I are stupid and don’t know how to do it. Hey, (temporary) ignorance is as good an excuse as any … wait, no it isn’t. Anyway, Sho will post it online either tonight or tomorrow, so keep checking; it’s pretty damn good, if I do say so.

Here’s the bad news, unless there is another explanation that is more reasonable: One of our boxes is missing. It’s the box that was located by the Knight Library. As far as I know, we haven’t moved or scrapped any of our old boxes yet (am I right, Tim?), so this leads me to believe that those filthy, pedophilic, First Amendment abridging, fat ass, box-dumping vandals are back, and this time they’ve gone too far.

Dumping a few issues, although reprehensible, does not require us (read: University students) to spend a lot of money on replacements. Now I need to purchase a new box, which was a distinct possibility for next year, but now I’m forced to do it as a result of this immature behavior. Jesus, you’d think that we were publishing a serialized version of Mein Kampf illustrated with child porn.

If this continues, I will have little recourse other than complaining to the ASUO and asking for more money — perhaps a rainy day Vandalism Fund, or, better yet, an OC Armed To The Teeth Fund. My vote goes toward the latter.

    There’s also the “Sudsy Wants You” link at right, that goes direct to the staff ap pdf.

  2. Tyler says:

    Yeah, the reason we don’t have any applications at the moment is because, for some reason, we can’t print PDFs on the office computer and I didn’t think there’d be much of a need for them over the summer. Maybe I was wrong about that. I’ll revise the application form on my computer, print some off and bring them by in a week, however, if you wanna stop by. Or you can e-mail the office computer at ocomment@darkwing.uoregon.edu, and we’ll put you on the e-mail list.

    And the first meeting of the school year will be held during week one.

  3. Danimal says:

    Slade, give us an email address and we’ll invite you to a meeting whenever Tyler sees fit to call one.

  4. Slade says:

    So, anyway, how’s a brother supposed to get to writing for you, if there’re never any job applications on the door?

  5. WWB says:

    Take Jake’s advice, although you’d probably have a better chance of recovering a bike. (I had 3 stolen in 5 years.)

  6. Jake says:

    OK, I don’t know what Reed’s comment was all about…but I digress…

    When I worked at the Ol’ Dirty back in college, we had a box stolen. Call the local police. The boxes are private property and it’s a criminal offense. While you may never see your box again, it’ll give the EPD something to do right before school starts.

  7. Timothy says:

    Jan: First amendment? They didn’t have that in CCCP remember?

  8. Timothy says:

    Justice is something only the weak believe in and the foolish trust. Vengence, however, is completely possible. Let’s burn some shit down just for the hell of it! Oh wait, no, we’re not fucking anarchist/pinko theiving, arsonist jackasses.

  9. Danimal says:

    Street justice? Okay, anonymous Eric. Should we bear in mind your preferred system of justice if we catch you tampering with our boxes?

  10. Jan says:

    Enemies of the First Amendment piss me off.

  11. Eric says:

    Street Justice.

  12. Danimal says:

    Christ. And if anybody out there sees someone running around with a giant black newspaper box strapped to the back of their bicycle . . . it’s probably doesn’t belong to them.
