The Longview Current editorial board would like to bid its farewell. The situation our nation is in has left us with nothing positive to say. Each of us will be leaving Longview and continuing our educations elsewhere. For the most part, we are not very excited about this. The future looks extremely bleak, especially for those of us going into the media.
Yeah, we’re screwed. The world has left a plethora of problems for us to solve.
Most of these problems are economical. Between outsourcing, increased competition, and simply fewer jobs, most of us will have to resort to being career vagabonds.
It is not all doom and gloom, though. We believe the current economic genocide that has taken place will not render our college educations worthless. For instance, after the housing market completely implodes, we can use our grotesquely overpriced books as makeshift forts to protect us from the acid rain that will inevitably be caused by our economic rival, China.
So why rush an education? Why try to get out of Longview as quickly as possible? At this point, it’s the only positive thing we have.
