CSS Cable

As a contributing writer for St. Scholastica’s school newspaper (aka the Cable) I enjoy long walks on the beach, and candle lit dinners.

But in all seriousness, the Cable is a nice sort of creative outlet for writers on campus to hone their craft. Weve got several sections, some of which are new since the paper had a major overhaul as of last year, and at the end of each semester there is an issue called the Fable, which you can imagine contains Onion-esque articles of hilarity.

Sometimes our paper can be the subject of controversy (not like the Wikileaks guys) such as an article that contained ‘Top 10 reasons not to go to Mexico for Spring Break’, an article which sparked the fury of many students on campus. But isnt that what a paper is supposed to do? Draw out opinions and create discussion? I think it is great when a news source can light a fire under its reader’s butt. In addition to lighting fires, the article also challenged students to face one another and try to find reconciliation. Apologies were made and forgiveness was meted out.

Scholastica is kind of like that ‘Mexico’ article in a way. It is a school learning how to be ‘PC’ and at the same time understand that ‘PC’ is a formality that doesnt excuse behaviour contrary in nature to the Benedictine values (Community, hospitality, love of learning, respect, and stewardship). That said, maybe a group other than the Cable can slip up and we can have more controversy and reconciliation. There are after all almost 100 clubs on campus (maybe more).

Anyways, this issue Ill be writing a biography of two tennis player, an article on the visiting Imam Feisal Rauf (author of What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America) and even an article on this very blog. Conflict of interest perhaps? No… just shameless self promotion.

On second thought maybe someone else should write it.
