Vox, meet your new daddy

After Molly’s terrific reign ended yesterday, you might be asking yourself, “Who’s the fool dumb enough to think he can run Vox Populi?”

Well, I’m that fool. But please—call me Chris.

Taking over as blog editor, I feel a bit like a step-parent barging into a divorced family. Sure, I’ve visited from time to time, but now I’ll be hanging around on mornings, nights, and weekends. But unlike an overeager step-father, I’m not going to make this transition any more awkward than it needs to be. (Plus, I promise that you won’t have to call me “Dad,” unless you want to.) And if it helps, Molly might stop by once in a while when she gets nostalgic for all things GUSA, DPS, and ANC-related.

Riding shotgun are my lovely assistant editors, Geoffrey Bible and Julie Patterson. While you might recognize Julie, Geoffrey’s a bit new to the blogging game. They’re both well-versed in the wonderful world of Vox commenting, so I expect you all to keep up the good work. And by “keep up the good work,” I mean, “continue to anonymously rip us to shreds at your each and every whim.”

Anytime you’ve got a tip, question, complaint, or screed penned by the lead singer of a Canadian rock band, let us know in the comments. If you’re looking for something less public, I’m here, here, and here too. (But don’t forget about Vox‘s Twitter and e-mail accounts either.)

Enough of the small talk. Let’s get started.

  1. Why are you smiling at a sign that restricts our First Amendment rights? I don’t remember reading in the Bill of Rights that freedom of speech was only allowed in nice little marked off areas (cough…Georgetown).

    Who knows? Maybe it’s a scornful smile…

  2. This guy is a major juggahoe. Once on my way home, he got on the Leavey elevator on the fourth floor and I swore I could hear Slipknot in his headphones. I miss Molly already, we need more jugalletes up in this b-word. Well, I’m going to spill some orange Faygo on my office carpet for you Molly. As for you Chris, you better get down with the clown and quick. I don’t want to see any of your scientist bullspit.

  3. @?says: Er, um…freedom of speech shall not be infringed by the government. A private University may do anything it wishes, such as creating a specific space for free speech (or no free speech space at all).

  4. @Fact Checker

    I know that. But that doesn’t mean I agree with it, or that particular interpretation of the Constitution.

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    I don’t think it’s that far-fetched to think that a law effectively allowing a university to curtail freedom of expression is unconstitutional.

  5. Ok, we don’t know much about this Chris. But ladies, look on the bright side–we finally have a Vox editor of our own to crush on!
