Good for The Daily Illini.
I wonder if any of the other Big Ten student papers did the same. I doubt it.
As far as I know, only about 3 papers nationwide carried them.
35 Bucks a semester got us Bloom County every day. Other than keeping track of campus happenings, that was pretty much the only reason to subscribe.
I have not been reading that much on this- but what the heck is so offensive about this- or is it more that the ego maniacs (religions of peace-nics) can not stand that they are being ridiculed. They surely will have to be raging against the machine for eternity if that is the case.
Hey, there's the University Daily Kansan! in Lawrence. Been in place for decades.
They don't seem to care if thousands of innocents get slaughtered in Allah's name, but a pencil sketch gives them cause to loot, riot, kill, and destroy.
The more I see from the "average" Muslim, the more I am inclined to believe their religion is a curse on humanity, and a disease to be fought until Islam is driven into extinction.
Let's hear it for Sonny Sixkiller!
Do they still allow the Indian gear? I think it is downright glorious!
Yes they do. It is authentic Sioux.
Rocky Moutain News (Denver, Co.) reprinted one of them Tuesday.

boston university has the daily free press
From personal experience I can tell you that the papers at UMass and Ohio State have been dailys since at least the mid '80s.
The DI goes Daily (well Mon-Fri). And it's not as liberal as you'd think, there's a contigent of conservatives (like me) that write for them.
Amazing. The DI used to have a Muslim editor who included all sorts of anti-American lies in that newspaper. What a giant step forward!
From personal experience, I can tell you that the Oklahoma Daily has been published at least since the 1940's at OU.
I read it daily back then to keep up with Bud Wilkinson and those magnificent Sooners. (Engineering students didn't have a lot of time to waste on other outside reading) ;^)
"He grew up into a proud young man
determined breed, he left his land
Put down his arrows, hung up his shield
and became a warrior on the football field!"
Yeah, I remember her. The good thing about a college newspaper is that every 4 years, you have completely fresh blood.
