The Technician is in deep doo-doo. Apparently, the rewards aren’t worth it: I don’t know if there is any pay, and I guess experience at a student paper isn’t what it once was.

I really would like to help them: I think the idea of the student paper is important. Less important is it actually being on paper. Their online presence could use a lot of work. But it’s not exactly encouraging when the current staffers say “Someone on staff needs to step up and sacrifice themselves to keep the paper alive.”

“Work”? Sure. “Sacrifice”? Cui bono?
