I was thinking about the good old days when I was young and fascinating and irresistable, and I was able to read stories in The Tech without reaching for my glasses - so please, dear readers, cut me some slack. I am terribly, fervently, absolutely and forever sorry. It won't ever, ever, ever happen again. Cross my heart and hope to die!
