Grrrr. Below is my article for this week. After the jump I kind of go off. Rest assured it’s well intended. I just think people are not standing up and defending their own rights, and it pisses me off. I’m just frustrated, really.
It’s probably the most work I’ve put into an article yet, and you can’t tell. I got nothing. It’s weak and crappy.
In an odd twist of fate, whoever was in charge of laying out the front page totally screwed the pooch and/or didn’t read my article, because they wrote what we had talked about at a budget meeting but not what I ended up getting. Oddly, the headline tells the truth, just not what I was able to report in the article. But alas, technically, THE FRONT-PAGE HEADLINE DOESN”T EVEN MAKE SENSE.
“Faculty income comparison draws outrage from staff” is the front-page refer, and…well, technically that means the professors pay comparison made the gardeners, maintenance people and secretaries of Metro mad. The staff are all reading this and asking “huh?”
“Staff” is very specific: they are paid by the state and not by the college…totally different animal. Fucking young editors. (As I was a few years ago.)
But that ain’t what I’m pissed about!
