Amateurism, theft, ripe at Etownian

I received news today about a little bit of theft and a little bit of crying at Eliziabethtown College's newspaper, the Etownian. It turns out some chap died and the paper decided to dedicate some print and web space to his passing. Unfortunately the Etownian lacked any proper pictures of the diseased. Written by the ever crafty electronic generation they quickly turned to Facebook for pictures. There’s nothing wrong with using social networking sites to find pictures. It's a great tool for the lazy reporter. These days who has the time of day to contact relatives for a proper photo? Apparently they're also too lazy to credit the photographs they used. The pictures published by the Etownian in their print edition and online were not credited to their photographer. Nothing screams amateur like journalists who don’t credit media. Nothing screams pathetic like journalists who refuse to credit media.

My Favorite Vidya Games

Penguin Truth's Top 25 Favorite Vidya Games I'm quite fond of video games. I'm not really a "gamer" the way others are, mostly because I've never been all that good at them. Seriously, I suck out loud at video games. They won't even let me in arcades. It doesn't help that folks who are good at video games make you feel like worthless trash if you aren't as good as they are at playing them. It's very discouraging. Still, there are a lot of video games I've enjoyed in my twenty five years of life. And here's the top 25! I'll provide some reasoning for the top ten. 1. Chrono Trigger (SNES) (1995) (Squaresoft)/Chrono Trigger DS (DS) (2008) (Square Enix) Chrono Trigger is the greatest video game of all time, of that I have no doubt. Okay, so actually, I've not played every video game of all time, so it would be impossible to determine whether or not this is an actual truth.
