Publications Offer Stories, Viewpoints

Oh the sad life of an ODE freelancer. In this year’s Back To The Books, Meghann M. Cuniff gives us valuable insight about campus publications.

Insight #1) Any publication that receives funding through the incidental fee is required to publish a certain number of issues, depending on the amount of money allocated by the ASUO Student Senate.

Problem is, that’s not actually true. The number of issues that must be published is determined by each organizations Mission and Goals statement and there isn’t a correllation between funding and number of issues.

Anyway, be sure to catch money quotes from our boy T-graf, they come someplace after a few muddled transitions.

    Come to think of it, i know that story got the shit edited out of it, so i blame a nameless, faceless copy editor. Megs does no wrong.

  2. meghann says:

    Tyler, sorry for the false info. I’ll blame that one on bad reprting. As for me misquoting you, I apologize, i had your quote written down as “we try to look at things with a sense of amusement rather than a sense of indignation.” I could have sworn that’s what I typed, but somewhere between my typing and the printing something inportant obviously got deleted. I really am sorry, we can run a correction. I guess I’ll count that as my first big mistake. And the first time I got made fun of by the commentator. Woo fucking hoo.

  3. Pete says:

    Did I call the office from Pita Pit? Hmm…. Drawing a blank on that one. But email me your cell phone number anyway, and send me a copy of the summer issue. And for God’s sake, get some bail money together. I can only hold off Zeus for so long.

  4. Timothy says:

    ASUO Politics are like some sort of sick addiction, I’m down here in Circle 8 (South Texas) and I’m still loving this shit.

  5. Jan says:

    To her credit on the publication-funding thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if some idiot in the ASUO gave her that, and I would be even less surprised if it was, say, the finance coordinator, who as we all know traditionally has about as much grasp on ASUO rules and/or accounting as Eddy Morales has on testosterone levels.

    By the way, enjoyed the first issue. Glad I can still keep up on campus politics way down here in the 7th layer of Hell — er, L.A.

  6. Timothy says:

    An ODE freelancer misquoted you, shocking! And you now have a cellphone number, Tgraf? You better get that thing to me, post-hast, asshole.

  7. WWB says:

    The ODE can misquote you all day long as long as you’ve gotten the message out that we’re unstipended. Good work.

  8. Tyler says:

    Actually, I think she misquoted me. If I remember correctly, I said: We dont look at things with a sense of indignation but with a sense of bemusement. But my memory isnt what it used to be.

    You can also catch me in the The Faces to Know section; Im right next to Don Goldman and Dave Frohnmayer (lucky me!). For some reason the Emerald reports that Im a Phoenix, Oregon native. This is simply not true! Calling someone from Ashland a native of Phoenix is like calling a native of Portland proper a native of Oregon City.

    Oh and one more thing: Pete, do you want my cell number so you dont have to call the office at 2:00 am from the Pita Pit? We dont want you to end up in jail again, like the time Jones failed to pick you up.
