Alternative paper is a good idea


    For every packet of sugar there is a packet of Sweet’N Low. For every Nike there is Adidas. Everyone in every facet of life has an opponent. It might be a cooperative opponent or an enemy. The Skiff is no different.

    Knowledge is the key to success and the Skiff cannot have a monopoly on what the student body reads.

    Alternative newspapers pop up here and there and provide students with a different view of TCU and life in general. Contrary to what some may think, the Skiff welcomes papers like WHAT’SUPTCU! to campus and hope they can provide students with even more sources of information.

    We want to the see the student body provided with the most knowledge possible, and the more outlets, the better.

    This is America, not communist China. Students have a right get information from any source they can. You might as well call us Monarch Skiff if we hoard information and let out only what we deem fit for the public. That is not what our country is about. And it’s not what the Skiff is about.

    Not only will there be a wealth of information for students, but these publications will push each other to be the best they can be. One paper will try to outdo the other.

    Only good can come from having some competition. Macy’s and Gimbell’s learned to live next to each other, so why can’t the Skiff and WHAT’SUPTCU! But Gimbell’s is gone, long gone. So, WHAT’SUPTCU! can be Gimbell’s.

    The Skiff would like to wish them the best of luck in enlightening the student body of TCU. Get out there. Get the story. Tell the world about it. 

    And until then, we’ll be working, and anxiously awaiting the next issue.
