help wanted

with Jamal off educating the children, Clay assuming new responsibilities, and me getting old and washed up, Cambridge Common is in need of new blood. Kind of sad that after only a few months of functioning we already need a new staff of writers, but I guess that's the way of any college publication, whether half-assed annoying blog or half-assed annoying newspaper. SO, in the next two months I will be asking around for people (preferably classes '07 and '08) who are interested in challenging the political monologue that exists on campus with new perspectives. While progressives, liberals, radicals and other anti-conservative voices are preferred, I'm open to anyone who is a serious thinker, willing to be challenged and challenging. Drop me an email if you're interested, if you have a friend that you think I should talk to, or whatever.

Cambridge Common is a serious (albeit often self-serving) effort to broaden discourse on campus that I am hopeful will continue beyond my zealous leadership. Join the team, fight the power, and all that jazz.

Let me get this straight-- "broadening" the discourse means recruiting more "progressives, liberals, radicals and other anti-conservative voices" to express themselves at Harvard?

Cute, Golis. Cute.

Actually yes. "Liberals" at Harvard are usually essentially compassionate perpetuators of the status quo. Not to mention the fact that the primary conversation that requires "broadening" on campus has nothing to do with Democrats v. Republicans, liberals v. conservatives, it has to do with issues of race, gender, privelege, class, structures of education, pre-professionalism, institutionalism, etc. Or, it has to do with things not ideological per se like UC politics, where the opinion of 5 people at the Crimson non-sensically dictates all of campus opinion. So yes, broaden was exactly the right word.

Hope you're having a great summer Paloma!

Hello, my name is Brandon Ruse. I will be attending Harvard as a transfer student, more specifically being a member of the Extension School at the university. I would like to say hello, and nice to meet each of you. I look forward to meeting most of you around the yard. I will be coming from Maryland.
