Here’s looking at you, Vox Populi readers

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:

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.

  2. I’ll have you know, Senator Redden, that this is not an excused absence.

  3. Oh Molly Dolly, you will be missed. But like a certain alum who can’t get enough GUSA, I’m sure you’ll be back quite often.

  4. This means I’m leaving too. My secret mission this entire semester has been to post a comment so entertaining and thought-provoking that Molly would e-mail me and ask me out- because I’ve had a massive crush on her for years and I’m too shy to ask her out myself. :'(

    Maybe this Chris Heller feller can make me forget about Molly’s amusing light-hearted tweets, and her always timely breaking news posts. And her smile… :(

  5. I, however, will adapt my comments to this change. Expect a series of outraged telegrams Molly.

  6. I once wrote in a maple syrup-fueled creative binge “If everyone cared and nobody cried/If everyone loved and nobody lied/If everyone shared and swallowed their pride/Then we’d see the day when nobody died.” When I wrote those words which have changed the world and will reach generations in the future, I did not expect a development like this. I’m afraid without Molly as editor, there is no hope. I realize we have not even seen the potential of this Chris Heller individual, but I’ve looked at the photographs of him and I’ve even heard that he couldn’t make it as a wise man or a poor man stealing so I still have little hope. He wants to be a rockstar, I can feel it, but Molly has set the standard higher than such behavior. I am forever your faithful servant,


  7. Come on Chad, not one reference to “If Today Was Your Last Day”?

  8. Hey Molly,
    Nice work here with the blog, really. I do wish you would have written at least a few additional posts about my apartment, though. The hot tub permit is still in limbo, but I did pick up a sick milkshake machine on Craigslist. Some people might say that making delicious milkshakes doesn’t fit with going to law school and being involved in politics, but I think they really go hand-in-hand. As a history buff, I once heard that President Jimmy Carter drank a milkshake a day during his term, which we all remember from the late 1980s.

  9. He’s running out of material, pretty soon he will have to start recycling. Then again, new blog editor, so perhaps the masses will overlook it again.

  10. Chad Kroeger never recycles anything! lyrics, chords, melodies, none of it is recycled! His music is as pure as the white-driven snow in the Big White North!
