    The Downfall of the ISU Daily

    First they take the Just Sayin's, then they post this. The Daily just overachieved on it's status as the biggest joke on campus. Read here Maxwell: College sports are not helpful

    there's already a thread on this. Pretty sure it's satire

    even if it's satire, it sucks. That's the point.

    How does something being printed mean that it isn't satire? There are entire novels that are satire out there. Were those authors being genuine and serious when they typed them up on a typewriter? Is The Onion not satire because it has a print version as well?

    Satire. I do not think it means what you think it means.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Downfall? It was awful when I was there in the early 90s. Can something have a downfall if it never was up in the first place?
