Work @ The Auburn Plainsman

I think that the point is that alot of people wanted to know the number. Like someone mentioned earlier, a non-campus newspaper could have provided ever more detail. The Plainsman posted the bare facts, and nothing else.
I know that there is a huge hole in Auburn where she used to be, and it pains me to know that she left the way she did. However, don't attack your student newspaper just because it's doing it's job in reporting to the student body about what happened to one of their own. They were not insensitive at all about their report. In fact, I think they were quite cordial in their reporting. (See another article written about her earlier) I hate that her BAC was so high, but once again, there are many people that wanted to know. (And you know what? Maybe someone else will learn from the sad circumstances from her mistake, and someone will be saved) They did a good job reporting this student story to the rest of the student body.

Holy shit do you people ever write anything original? How many years are we going to read stories about ladies roller skating? I think a story on this has been in every year of The Plainsman since I started here as a freshman.

Does anyone actually read this website enough to comment on their school year? I think the post below answers that question.

Regardless of what is "public" or not, it is sad to see that The Plainsman is more concerned with making news than showing any empathy for a family that has been so good to the Auburn community. This could have happened to anyone, would you want another article resurfacing about your sister? i think not.

I'm a huge proponent of the Auburn family as well. I want it to be represented in the best way possible. However, Miss Goodner WAS representing the Auburn family. News is news. If the BAC was a public number, then it's a public number. I have actually been wondering what the number was, so that I could have some closure.
It's not a lack of respect for The Plainsman to post this. It's news. In the "real world," I think much MUCH more could have been posted. War Eagle.

A lack of respect given to the family of Miss Goodner by your newspaper is evident in this article. Posting the BAC is the last thing they want posted to the public. Alcohol was involved and that is known and is not being hidden from public knowledge, but that number was not, in any way, necessary for you all to print. This is YOUR Auburn family, lets show some respect. The Plainsman needs all the help it can as it remains a joke of a collegiate newspaper, try to keep the few readers you have.

Wilgochev - Highly doubtful that the legislators that have to approve the nomination will do anything to life a finger. The lobbying firm of Robert Geddie that Lowder uses has donated a lot of money to their campaigns over the past few election cycles:
J.T. "Jabo" Waggoner - 70k of Geddie donations
Harri Anne Smith - 40k of Geddie donations
Gerald Allen - 11k of Geddie donations
Roger H. Bedford, Jr. - 135k of Geddie donations
Slade Blackwell - 36k of Geddie donations
Ben Brooks - 8k of Geddie donations
Priscilla Dunn - 28k of Geddie donations
Arthur Orr - 41k of Geddie donations
Cam Ward - 36k of Geddie donations
Tom Whatley - 29k of Geddie donations
The only rep of the 11 that didn't receive any money from Geddie's firm (that I could find) was Jerry Fielding. I'm pretty sure I can figure out how the others are going to vote...
