Hey, look up.

Good. I’m glad you found the sky pretty and I hope you took a moment to give silent thanks for

living in Santa Barbara during the spring; however, I meant “look up” in a look-at-the-top-right-bit-of-the-page way.

See? New people.

Next year’s Nexus staff is in place and full of fresh, young and eager optimism. If you have one to spare, why not take a moment and give thanks that they’re willing to sacrafice their youths and their descriptive adjectives to produce an interesting newspaper, even when it’s quite pretty on the beach.

Wednesday’s forecast: A moment of quiet appreciation for mutilated python news followed by a resumption of writing nasty letters to the editor.
