Delayed summer issue…oops?!?

As Editor-In-Chief of the Commentator for the 07-08 school year, I alone take responsibility for the summer issue missing the deadline of today. Everything was looking good and peachy for a 10 p.m. Internet release, until the OC summer staff was booted from the Erb Memorial Union by Mike, the EMU “security,” and Programs Coordinator Liora “Spunky” Sponko, about 19:00 Friday evening.

Apparently, we were there past summer hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and it was “a liability issue” for a few fee-paying (not to mention student-serving without pay) students to be in the building. Who knows what destruction we were to cause if allowed to remain in the building until 10 p.m. We are currently at Rennie’s cursing the ridiculousity that is campus bureaucracy.


Alas, I still take responsibility and apologize to the eager fans waiting for the summer issue. So here is a preview: The “When Keepin It Real Goes Wrong” Award goes to Ty Schwoefferman; the OC tears into Bellotti for not have a mustache; we stand against Canadian geese for pooping on our land; and, we call out Larry Craig for calling out “nasty, bad, naughty” boys. Plus, plenty of phalli (or phalluses) and a short recap of that last 25 years that was, is, and always will be, the Oregon Commentator.

Summer Issue will be online Monday at noon, on the dot, and delivered in print as fast as Western Oregon Press can get it to us. Back to the Booze is still on schedule. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Dude that is a *sick* ‘OC asks’ picture format – keep it up.

  2. Andy says:

    Good thing you all weren’t tasered.

    Ossie, wearing socks with sandals is not the same as wearing your Birkenstocks on the inside. I think you have some work to do to get into her cute little “we can do it if we work together” pants.

  4. Ossie says:

    I’m a team player.

  5. Sean says:

    That’s kind of like making Butters take one for the team.

  6. Timothy says:

    T: Does that mean Ossie should seduce her to get in good graces with the EmuNazis?

  7. Sean says:

    Kind of reminds me of the movie Swing Kids when the Nazis came in and broke up the swing dance party at the end of the movie, and the younger brother ended up holding an umbrella yelling ‘SWING HEIL’ as the movie faded to black.

  8. T says:

    Emily McLain is kind of a bitch, dude.

  9. Niedermeyer says:

    This was one of the most pathetic displays I’ve witnessed in quite some time. The programs coordinator (read: ASUO secretary) getting a poor little EMU maintenance dude all hot to hassle us, both of them coming into the office with the sole intention of antagonizing us for the pure sad joy of it. I was almost tempted to ask why it was so important for the Emily McLain to know when we were going to stay late in the EMU, but the whole idea was so absurd, and I really didn’t care anyway. Besides, the whole event was just a crude, transparent attempt to somehow “put us in our place.” Even after we told them that we would be leaving in a few minutes, they still hung out and hassled us about keys and other random bullshit of no consequence just to get that little bureaucrat high.

    It’s easy to forget how sad things can get around here.

  10. T says:

    Dude, you gotta give those people notice. And by “notice” I mean drugs.

  11. Timothy says:

    I call Shenanigans!

  12. Ray Smuckles says:


  13. Ossie says:

    Nope, actually you have to clear it with Emily McLain, ASUO prez.

  14. Timothy says:

    What the fuck kind of bullshit policy is that? Do you now have to clear late nights with some DPS flunky?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
