So now that the Daily Cal opinion columnists all have a few columns out, what’s the verdict on the new O-team?

Dangierre says Billy Main has balls and the female Sex on Tuesday is “hot,” but he calls out the “politics guy and food dude” to crank it up. Beetle, though, picks on Taylor Fife, the de facto politics go-to. Yeah, yeah, so give us the deets on Thursday.

Fine, we’ll do it ourselves.

Robin Schramm–we’ll call him the stories guy–wrote today that he no longer wants to become a dinosaur. Instead he’ll opt for silverback gorilla:

1) You get to have a harem of female gorillas from which you can choose whom to impregnate 2) You get to be hairy and fat and eat bananas all day long, but with one grimace, everyone runs away screaming, and 3) Finally I would have an excuse for lying around naked all day long playing with myself.

Inventive mind, that Schramm, but too bad he’d be hung like a gorilla. Yeah, that’s 1.5 inches erect.

Yes or no?

Today the Daily Cal launched its first publication for the year, complete with a Spring Orientation special issue and a new columnist situation. If you flip to page 3, you’ll be surprised to note no Sex on Tuesday. The column hasn’t been retired; rather, the application deadline is later this time around (Feb. 1) and you’ll get your first glimpse of that shiny, sexy face on Feb. 5.

Instead, there’s something different afoot. It seems election season is already upon us, and we get to test our voting might by choosing our next Monday columnist. Today featured Margeaux, but don’t get too cozy with her just yet—there are three other potentials waiting to claim the Monday spot. read more »
