Hot Off the Press

Publishing in print once again, Peacelight has rewritten our Onion satire for the Tufts Daily. Available as an Op-Ed on Tuesday, the work had to be edited a bit, a joint effort of myself and Daily staff. Reworked both to include a more pointed message about consumerism and to account for its near two-week delay in publication, the new article is entertaining readers at this very moment.

Personally, I think it works well. The photograph really helps remind readers of the humor of the evening, allowing the satire to be better received. The last few lines aren't as good as some of the middle content, which I think is unfortunate; it's best to build up to something incredibly witty. I'll have to try harder next time.

In other news, PETA has announced that its speaker series, "Elephant Hides and How to Care for Them," will finally be making its way to Tufts. The program started 36 years ago in California and has taken its time in getting here. Oops.
