Lots of Good Amy Langfield:...

tastefully brief recollection of the fall of 1989, when she was editing a university daily (for which I was the production manager/typesetter, and author of a daily humor paragraph disguised as the "weather"). Italics are mine:

When I was editor of my college paper, our Back to School issue -- which was sent to students at their parents' address in August -- included a full-page guide on what freshmen needed to know about drugs at college. It was a Tony Pierce creation. I think it said which were safe, which were sketchy, availability and probably prices. And to her credit, our chancellor (we learned only months later) fielded dozens of calls from angry parents wanting to transfer their precious incoming freshmen.
News you could really use!

Lots of Good Amy Langfield:...

Lots of Good Amy Langfield: First, she busts dailycandy.com for euphemistically using the word "dedicated" instead of "advertisement" atop paid-for e-mail announcements. She also indulges in a tastefully brief recollection of the fall of 1989, when she was editing a university daily (for which I was the production manager/typesetter, and author of a daily humor paragraph disguised as the "weather"). Italics are mine:

When I was editor of my college paper, our Back to School issue -- which was sent to students at their parents' address in August -- included a full-page guide on what freshmen needed to know about drugs at college. It was a Tony Pierce creation. I think it said which were safe, which were sketchy, availability and probably prices.
