Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator

Full of Win


It’s not often that I sit down and actually read the Emerald. I understand that statement makes me sound snobbish or just like an asshole, but it’s true. After last year’s absolutely dreadful run of print, it’s just not in my daily routine anymore. Sure, I grab a copy every-other-day or so, but I rarely open it up. Usually it just sits here on the Commentator couches until De Lancie or I do the monthly office cleaning.

Having said that, I did remark at the beginning of the year that I thought the Emerald was getting quite a bit better. I’d like to reiterate that sentiment now that our first term of this year is coming to a close. The news and opinion section has considerably better talent compared to last year, and the sports section, as always, is thorough and well-done.

For example, today’s opinion piece by Greg Dewar reminded me that the University of Oregon, as well as the Emerald, has many talented writers that are able to write about something, even video games, and make their arguments concise and fun to read.

I, for one, am glad to see that we have a campus paper that students can pick up and enjoy on a rather consistent basis. It’s what this campus needs, and I tip my hat to the Emerald.

To lift a line from Dewar, the paper is indeed “full of win”.

Well, for the Emerald.

    Ummm … OK….

    I like Greg’s columns too … this one, not his best …. but good effort, nice hustle (*slap on the buttock*)

    I agree. It’s like Magic playing with HIV, where HIV is a financial nosedive and anonymous unprotected sex is proverbially lighting your cigars with $50 bills.

    I disagree.

    You see, it’s funny because of the circumstances.

    No, I do like Greg’s columns. He’s a good writer.

    This is satire, right?
