Hey Champ(s),

This issue puts a spotlight on some of the more marginalized people in our society – Native Americans, non-Christians and Britney Spears. For some of these folks, the outcome is grim and undecided. For others, it’s a joyous celebration. For Britney Spears, it’s about the same, except she’s let her hair grow back. As you’re reading this week’s issue, try and put yourself in the shoes of these people – broadsided, bewildered or generally overlooked until they let you act like a hooligan and throw colored chalk all over their property. Maybe you’ll put down this issue and find yourself rooting for the underdog.

Also, we’re continuing our new features,“(P)review,” where we review movies based solely on their trailers and “Get it? Got it. Gerulat,” the advice column written by sage slacker and beloved staff writer Greg Gerulat. Be sure to check those out and tell us what you think. After all, we’re a free 8 page weekly tabloid at an open enrollment university. There’s a little bit of underdog in us, too.

Rah, rah, rah,
