A&E: Leaving the last word to a song

A&E: Leaving the last word to a song

In true A&E fashion, perhaps it's best to leave the last word to song lyrics:

In parting, you could say another one bites the dust (Queen), I hope you've had the time of your life (Green Day), it's the end of the world as we know it (REM), now it's time to say goodbye m-o-u-s-e (Mickey Mouse Club) or remember kids, learning is half the battle (GI Joe), it's time to move on, it's time to get going, what lies ahead I have no way of knowing (Tom Petty).

But, before there can be an end, there must be a beginning . . .

It began like a dream. Three starry-eyed wannabe A&E editors with free stuff on their minds, stormed into the windowless office of Rm. 263 UCC with the intentions of filling endless pages of newsprint with their own convoluted opinions and fabulous ideas.

The dream became a nightmare as one page instead of three was thrown at the hopeful editors. To think, these naive editors believed there would be room for horoscopes and full page Friday covers.

But that's okay.

When we woke up, there were 97 whole issues to do and thankfully millions of volunteers to get 'em done. Thanks to a small group of regular contributors who stuck with it despite our tendency to not print their articles, there have been barely any shits and lots of giggles this year.

And, since A&E is famous for free stuff, a thanks must go out to the many record companies, publishers, e-mail-gurus and Silvercity who provided us with stuff, updates and services in exchange for a little bit of newsprint.

Thanks to our parents in Front Office for not firing us and to those mysterious people at Webco who print our paper.

Congrats and good luck to next year's slaves to entertainment: Megan O'Toole, Maggie Wrobel and Dale Wyatt.

Thanks to the writers, the readers, the lovers and the haters. See, hippies aren't all that bad and Molly's really not that scary.

–Andrea, Dale and Molly,

A&E Editors 2001-2002
