When I arrived on campus today, I noticed that the ubiquitous green newspaper boxes that normally carry a daily dose of college newspaper goodness were empty or still sporting last Friday's edition. Thinking that the kids at the Daily Emerald must have screwed the pooch and not gotten an edition out, I headed over to the webpage for some sort of explanation.
There is no apology for not getting the edition out, nor any overt explanation as to why there are no hard copies available in the boxes, but today's top story might provide some clues.
A Global farce?
A number of researchers say that despite public opinion, global warming may be a result of natural causes
That's right, it appears that the Emerald has come out against human-caused global warming.
All I can say is, WTF? No wonder they don't want to print that shit.
