As part of a mass media blitz to enlighten Blacksburg to the way I see things, I’ve taken a summer volunteer columnist position at the Collegiate Times. I hope to brush on issues of faith and life with humor and tact, and perhaps influence people to think for a brief moment about their purpose for existence. Thus far I’ve written the articles Ruthless Corporate Villains, Compassion Should Precede Tragedy, and John Lennon’s Imaginary World. If you feel compelled, write a response to the paper so everyone can know your opinion as well. They usually print everything they get, especially in the summer. If you have an idea for an article (or would like to write a 700 word draft for me), please reply here and let me know. Writing a persuasive essay each week is proving harder than I anticipated!
