I Think You’re Soooo Great!

Ms. Mattison,I just wanted to thank you for your article in this week’s cynic. I make an effort to read the cynic every week, a vain attempt to garner some insight into how my peers at UVM feel about their experience here. It is consistently a trash heap of name-calling, superficial social commentary and shallow, meaningless dialectic. This is only aggravated by its editors, Julian Brizzi and Andrew Woods, who seem to derive some sort of sick and twisted pleasure from spitting out the most inane and desultory commentary they can muster each week. Your article was the first intelligent, compassionate and poignant work I have seen appear in the cynic since I arrived at UVM two years ago, and I thank you for it. My Thursday morning is a touch brighter.
