Headline As Koan, Part XVIII

As I’ve said before, it has got to be basically impossible to produce a daily paper’s worth of interesting and/or relevant material on this campus, so I certainly don’t want to fault the ODE too harshly for their struggles.

On the other hand, Web logs transform expression methods? For Christ’s sake. What’s more, if we want to know what drives students to drink – which we apparently do – I think sentences like “Among the many facets of student life, drinking alcohol is one aspect that has become heavily embedded into college culture” have to be considered among the main culprits.

  3. Timothy says:

    spam comments get the free linky so log as they exist, after removal and rebuild they go…if you refresh the page.

  4. Timbo says:

    Moving off-topic, I notice that even though the spam comments are getting filtered out, the spammers still get free links in the “Recent comments” section.

    Somebody should do something about this soonish. Please, think of the children!

  5. Hmmm… Which came first, the Chicken or the… chicken? The Blog or the… blog?

  6. Timbo says:

    “[Paul Bausch] said blogs came at the right time as people were getting on the Internet and reading blogs.”

    It’s a damn good thing that blogs didn’t arrive any later — they would have missed all those people, um, reading… them.

    Chris: that’s pretty much what we end up with as it is… God only knows what a daily would look like. Lots more Sudsy, I imagine.

    (And Samizdata our counterparts? I wish. They’re definitely my favorite serious blog from across the pond.)

  8. I have to say I think it would be funny to see you guys write a daily, I think it would devolve into pages of semi-witty commentary and vulgarity.
    PS Have you guys seen your British counterparts?

    “Although Blass said she does not drink and many of her friends are not partiers, she hears stories about people who often go to bars and parties.”

    Haha, Blass, now the entire school knows you are LAME.

    Of course, when I was a freshman I heard a girl talk about getting drunk and peeing in her random frat hook-up’s bed, then being offended that the guy was mad about it. So there you go.

    “Oliver Ruff” was always near the top of my causes and inspirations.
