We pulled off a decent spread on The Beat and The Bench. Couldn't use as many photos as I wanted...and somehow The Beat story's last column was a little higher than I thought...but it still looks alright.

Read the article.

It was all worth it for this quote:
They despised Mu Alpha.
"They sucked. I’m sure they still suck," said Frank. "They were really lame and extremely conservative. They were the kind of people who would be in Latin class and recite Latin with a British accent. They liked to take their shoes off. Just lame, offensively lame. I’m sure they still are."

Seems like the reporter hit all the bases. Although, I kind of wish she would have been able to talk to Silliman...a better voice of clear reason than Dave and Jon.

Still, pretty golden.

The article on the Bench was absurd. I almost can't believe those people actually exist. It is good to be out of Hillsdale.

And what about the two people that single-handedly emptied the rank, though liberated, refuse from the abused, choloric, shrivelled frame of that magical off-campus house?
The smell was the legacy.

Possible headlines: "The Beat Went On" or, simply, "Shit Sandwich."
Let's hear it for the struggling authors still trying to clean up after the Beat generation.

Tongue-in-cheek, boys, of course. Great article, it's a part of us all.
