Elected on a platform of Taylorism, democracy, and radical centrism, we somehow stumbled into this imperfect, impassioned project on College Hill. All politics are local, after all, and perhaps this ‘blue wave’ all our parents have been talking about has already arrived, closer to home than we ever expected. Seismic shifts have rocked the Indy community by corporate decree: the prohibition of ‘gansetts, juul-free zones in conmag, and a reinvigorated understanding our our relationship with the body.
On a serious note, building on the dedicated work of past Managing Editors, the Indy has instituted a number of paid positions for low-income staff members, received funding for 16 color pages, and finally cleaned its damn room. This is our model for change; equal parts corporate and benevolent, our starting point for an alternative(?) future, week-by-week.
