Analysis: opinion checking the News section

By Joshua Wagner, Copy Editor Since 1897, The Gettysburgian has been the unbiased documentation of campus history. 110 years later, the News section of The Gettysburgian carries on the tradition of providing accurate, unbiased, and timely articles concerning the happenings of Gettysburg College’s campus.  On occasion, typos or wrong figures leaked through, but overall, the editing procedure sustained the quality of these articles....

Milo who?: An appeal to the right

By Alex Romano, Opinions Editor Cat Stevens had it right the whole time. It truly is a wild world in which we live. So wild that all of a sudden, otherwise indistinguishable right-wing news agencies like Breitbart can become relevant.

I have a variety of feelings with regard to this recent shortage of articles from...

What are those?

Satire By Colby Sites, Contributing Writer I do not have a foot fetish, but I do love feet. I enjoy walking around barefoot whether I am going across campus, or I am just walking around my house. My intention is not to convince the student population that a barefoot lifestyle is the only true lifestyle to live, but I am trying to persuade the fact that it is my prerogative to be barefoot. I am not going to judge someone for wearing...
