Staff Meeting

Had our first one yesterday. Mostly we went over how the first issue went, it was expected to be twelve pages but turned out to be sixteen; so we have outperformed already. Then we went over newspaper grammar and style conventions, chiefly to justify editing choices. Apparently the term “freshman” is now taboo in the newspaper world because some idiot do-gooder wanted something to complain about it supposedly hurts the self esteem of first year students. Next we went over assignments. I have been given an assignment to write about one of our professors who is Fullbrighting in Finland, then I will be writing a report of the religious persecution of the Kurds. Overall the school paper has kept me very busy, but the good kind of busy.
