My last semester at BYU, I was fortunate to serve as the Issues & Ideas page Editor. My job was great. I worked good hours, for good pay (for an on-campus student job), with some of my good friends and was mentored by two advisors I grew to greatly respect.
On the flip side, I became so jaded by opinions that I took a long, long news/opinion/political fast. I'm just now allowing myself to listen to NPR on the way home from work.
One of my former colleagues and fellow Oregonians works as the current 'Op-Ed' page editor. She just wrote a fabulous viewpoint to the admittedly many self-righteous finger pointers that attend BYU (don't worry, I'm a proud alumni).
Take a read when you have a moment.
I miss the title of editor.
In a dream world, I'd love to be an editor at a magazine. But, that's another post for another day.
