Read a letter to the editors of the Cardinal News written by Newman on Friday, November 21.
The Underground Raises The Roof
I can't tell you the details of how we got in [the 3rd floor], but suffice it to say that it involved a crowbar, some WD-40, and a well-placed ferret.
The Underground Sucks!
The Joys Of Mastication*
I Have A Drum Machine - The Battle Of The Bands
I think that this issue is almost as good as issue four, but once again it suffers from not being taken seriously enough, a problem that almost ended The Underground after six issues. Very few people actually believed that we went to the third floor (we did, I have the pictures to prove it). Also, the sarcasm of "The Underground Sucks!" was lost on many, as was the excellent (although brief) satire of "I Have A Drum Machine" by Kesus. The Cardinal News, in their rebuttal to the letter linked above in their December issue, claimed that The Underground was becoming increasingly self-absorbed, pointing to this issue's two articles with "The Underground" in the title. This is one of the most-read issues ever, due to the fact that this is the time when The Underground Online won "Best of Pod" from Tripod, prompting a flood of 200 hits.
