- An Editor's Broadside
The student editors of Hillsdale College's Collegian knew they'd blown it; the publication's Web site offered an apology for a staff editorial last week that ridiculed the losing ways of the Michigan college's baseball team and the "badass ... swagger" of its members. But as low as the student journalists admit to have aimed, their targets appear to have ratcheted it down a few steps. The paper's editor found the carcasses of several dead animals (including a goat and "one and a half deer," as the Associated Press put it) on the steps of the off-campus house where he lives, with a copy of the editorial tucked underneath. College officials said they had resolved the situation, declining to say whether baseball players were involved and making clear that no animals had been hurt in the incident.
