I suppose we should take it as a good sign that in the past 20 years the Review has moved on to blacklisting hipsters instead of outing gay kids to their families.There's also a weird article in the most recent issue on Al Sharpton that contains what I think is a really unfortunate error. The quote is this:We are all familiar with Dr. King’s dream that his “four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” but we often forget, as [Heritage Foundation person Carolyn] Garris reminds us, that King still wishes them to be judged—by their moral turpitude rather than race. “Today,” she writes, “this is the conservative message.”I think this might be an example of Malchow-ism. You have an entirely appropriate word in mind, but there's this other word that sounds much more important. You're not sure what it means, but you use it anyway.Presumably, the author meant to say "fiber" or "fortitude" or "character" rather than "turpitude." Turpitude means depravity. I'm sure that Dr. King's children would be happy to know that conservatives will judge them by their moral depravity rather than their race. Good job.
again the review is fuckin' up.mattheiu pierce? un-hip.ben taylor? the opposite of hip.they literally were like "okays who around here wears square glasses"also the omission of monica morrison '07 is particularly striking. she already got bangs and went platinum blonde. and what of her skinny, tight-pants wearing boyfriend, matt cohn '08? hip.
The entire list was embarrassing. "Everyone in Collis" -- Anyone who felt validated by this list, anyone who wants to add to this list, and anyone who actually helped in writing the list is just embarrassing.
The whole issue was screwed up. The review of Rev. Forbes' sermon - suprisingly a positive review - characterized me as being "shocked" my friends aren't all gung-ho government majors. I'm not shocked they don't care about politics in the slightest; just dismayed. And it left out the most important part of the good Reverend's sermon (I'd asked how to combat apathy) - he said apathy can be changed, but it has to be done by groups, not by individuals. Be humble and join an organization, he said. There will come a statistic, a number, so grave and so depressing that no one will be able to ignore it.
Connor, the fact that someone like you would call me un-hip is perhaps my greatest incentive to continue breathing. Being called a mediocre non-participant, however, is an affront to everything I've put into the Dartmouth scene.The next time you wander into FNR, ask around for the names of the people who make it happen. Or, better yet, don't take potshots at people of whom you know nothing.
