What a suprising commentary from the same newspaper that brought me an article about black people (yes, lumping them all together in a stereotypical fashion) are bad tippers! You (the Plainsman staff) are the biggest bunch of hypocrits by permitting racism when you think it's funny but condeming it when you didn't think of it first.

I think this is a very well written article. There are plenty of people that do not know the story behind this and I think it is incredible to see the guys' emotion and excitement behind the whole project. Don't hate on The Plainsman... they turned the article into an interesting feature.

When we first saw one of the “editorials” being passed of in the plainsman this week, we all had a good laugh. “Seriously?” was heard throughout the campus, and jovial joking soon gave way to anger and indignation. Is this a joke?
no joke.....it's real

Hold on there cowboy!! Careful what you ask for, you might just get it. I for one do not think passing out "real" tickets is all the great of an idea.

As former law enforcement, I agree that strong enforcement is the only way to truly change behavior. However, police departments have two battles to fight.
The first battle is enforcing the law. The second is maintaining good public relations. Too often, people acquire the attitude that the only time they see a cop is when they're in trouble. Good public relations can change or prevent this.
Perhaps, we are in a that period before true law enforcement begins, where officials are building an *awareness* of the laws before moving on to full *enforcement* of the laws (i.e. - performing good public relations).

remember to not mix up bad workers with a bad boss.
I have seen lots of good work done by the students who work at the paper for years now. It is this year under their current either editor or faculty adviser that this recent load of crap has made its way into the publication.
I dont think its fair to group all these students, who do work extremely hard to produce something, with a lazy editor whose past columns have included such newsworthy topics as her new cats and why she should be allowed to live in New York.
Also, these young students are brainwashed by the liberal arts faculty, what do you expect their columns to be about!? lol
But ya, how could the plainsman ever hope to be helped by the university with crap like this. They have always said the university begs them to take money so they can censor them....I think the university would be embarrassed now am i right?

I get Rebecca's point, but I don't think the paper would take funds if the students wanted to give them. There are a lot of rules regarding the ability of an administration to interfere with what a student run newspaper can publish.
If the paper took funds, it would be plausible for the administration to tell them what they could print. So, maybe you can donate your money, but definitely don't storm a SGA meeting demanding for funds to be given to the paper.

another fail for the plainsman.

Oh, and just so you don't think I'm an uptight teetotaler trying to parent you on drinking, I'll let you know that I've had to deal with my own alcohol habits after coming face-to-face with a DUI.
It just takes one run-in with the law to change your perspective on how much you drink and how you act when you do.
