Special thanks for all your love, knowledge and support…
to my mom and dad.
to Caitlin and Marisa – hey, psychogirls, the party’s in my room!
to Professor Bob Cole, Professor Kim Pearson and Professor Cathy Day.
to Pete Mills and Bob Wittik, who, unbeknownst to them, made me want to be a journalist.
to Michelle, Pete, Dana, Aaron, cookies, lolipops and reality-based television.
Most importantly, to the greatest staff in Signal history.
to Brian Hershberg (adviser), who saved us time and time again from potentially hazardous dealings with Wal-Mart, please don’t ever leave us!
to the Business Office (Dana, Sean, Dave and Rich). Thank you all for putting up with the switch to digital.
to Jaybird, who kept Fun Stuff fun.
to Kelly, who redefined the position of assistant. Somebody give that girl some ketchup, please!
to Matt Fair, aka Richard Dent, aka Fair Bear, aka Your Insolent-ness, and Melissa, Fair Bear Wife #1, who both braved the digital world in order to make a sharper paper.
to Megan, our Quark Goddess, 101.5 and/or ABC is lucky to have you.
to Heather, who wouldn’t be able to hear any of the nice things I could say to her; who’s the next Cop of the Week? Maybe that’s why Pablo was calling (either that or she wrote a nasty cutline about him) and to John Kell (or should I say ‘Dear Ben”), I heart the commentary. The Sports section is a credit to you both.
to Kate, who had to endure more than any Opinions Editor should have or has had to endure. Go, Rugby and good luck with that Ari Fleischer thing (invite me to the wedding).
to Matty “what do you need reporters for?” O, whose pictures and Photoshop skills made for a pretty paper.
to Kristen, who wrote the greatest physics opus ever written, make sure that Jeff guy doesn’t steal Dent’s hammer, O.K.?
to Amy, who loves features, matzoh and house music.and to Kristina, who is evil (and talented, ambitious and smart) – there’s some pizza in the garbage with your name on it! Derek Wan would be proud of you both!
to my JBo, how do I love thee? Let me count the smart quotes …
to Meredith, the Greatest Student Journalist in Ze World (and perhaps, also, the craziest).
and to Amanda, my crackerjack partner in print, one half of what is perhaps the best matched ME/EIC duo ever (did we fight once this whole semester?), good luck next year. Maybe if you work hard enough, they’ll let you be Managing Editor. (Hey, a girl can dream!)
If I have anything thing to say that sounds like advice it’s this – just because someone says that you can’t do it, doesn’t mean it is impossible. All of you – your desire, your ambition, you truly uncanny ability to work together as a team – taught me that. Thank you. Now about my surprise party …
The Signal Underground Vol. 1 was produced by Jeanine Skowronski, Editor in Chief.
It was recorded in the basement of the student center from January 27 to April 29, 2003.
This disc is dedicated to the memory of Celia Skowronski, strong and beautiful, now dancing up in heaven.. I love you and I’ll miss you.
