I knew this day would come, but it still kind of blows my mind. My time as Vox Populi editor is up. That plane I just got on is taking me back to print journalism to be Managing Editor of Georgetown’s premier alternative newsrag. Because inside of us, we both know I belong with the print Voice.
I’m no good at being noble, and it doesn’t take much to see that the departure of one little person doesn’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. But because I’m feeling maudlin, I want to look back on some of the times we had together:
- We went to the forum about the Georgetown Heckler when students condemned it as offensive
- Provost James O’Donnell and his “surprising pockets of failure” puzzled us during snow week
- CAG troubled us with its “Save Our Neighborhood” monetary campaign against the 2010 Campus Plan
- We watched, slightly flabbergasted, as members of Plan A Hoyas chained themselves to the statue of John Carroll
The keys to Vox Populi are being left in the very capable hands of former Leisure editor Chris Heller and two trusty assistants who he’ll introduce tomorrow. Thanks for a semester of thoughtful comments. And hilarious/Chad Kroeger/downright indecent/what?? comments, too. We’ll always have Philly Pizza.
