Michael Crichton’s Funeral Held at Airport Bookstore Los Angeles, CA- The Funeral of novelist and Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton, who died on November 4th from cancer at age 66, was held on Sunday at the LAXBooks kiosk in Terminal 2 of The Los Angeles International Airport before several dozen businessmen between ﬂights and stranded travelers. “We thought that Mike would have loved this,” said Crichton’s widow, Sherri Alexander, “We thought it would be appropriate to hold it before some of his most loyal readers, at least until they have to board their next ﬂight.” The service was followed by a quick reception at the terminal’s McDonald’s.
Government Resorts to Bullying for Addtional Money Washington, D.C.- The United States Government has sunk to a new low as it is now hiring professional bullies across the nation in an attempt to generate enough money to support the $700 Billion Bailout plan in progress. “Really, this is a great opportunity for me to expand my business,” said Randy Fulcher, Preston Middle School’s top bully. “And you fart knocking ass-wipes better give me your money or I’ll shiv you!” Senator Chuck Schumer (DNY) had this to say about the new addition to the bailout plan. “Well, I never seemed to have any money left over after the bullies were done pants-ing me, so I ﬁgured what better way to generate much needed revenue?” the Senator said. Each bully will receive a 20% bounty on each nerd’s income collected.

Some students, mainly Asians, will be transferring from Rutgers to Busch next semester.

Starbucks Cancels All ‘Free Coffee’ Incentives Due to Felonious Infractions Will not Offer ‘Gay Marry in California for a Frappuccino’ on Thursday BY JOHNNY CHALLENGER STAFF WRITER
Seattle, WA- Rick Wellinger, Head Executive in charge of Starbucks Promotions issued a statement on Tuesday that suspended the “Free Coffee Day” incentive program indeﬁnitely amidst rumors that the company was rewarding criminal behavior. “After we were committing a Federal crime by offering a free
cup of coffee as an incentive to get people to vote, we wanted to take a step back and review our other programs’ legality” said Wellinger in a press conference earlier today. Although the majority of the promotions centered on legitimate offers such as “Sing for a Free Cup Day” and “Wear (College) Apparel for a Free Mufﬁn Day”, a few incentives seemed to lean on the side of borderline illegal and immoral practices. Among the more controver-

Since the press conference, the FBI has been trying to contact Wellinger but he has allegedly ﬂed the country.

Recount in Senate Race Reveals Coach Bombay Winner Lawyer Turned Hockey Coach Pulls Off Miracle Upset Over Coleman, Franken BY TORGO VAN PELT STAFF WRITER
St. Paul, MN- Midway through the recount process for Minnesota’s seat to the U.S. Senate, shock has occurred. What was thought to originally decide the winner between incumbent Republican Norm Coleman and humorist, party activist, and Democratic nominee Al Franken, the recount has instead put lawyer, youth hockey coach, former Junior Goodwill Games ofﬁcial, and Independence Party candidate Gordon Bombay in front, with victory looking more and more certain. The reason why there was a discrepancy between the original count and the recount is pretty clear. According to Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, “The ballots in Minnesota are basically Scantrons, which require a circle being ﬁlled in next to the name of the candidate.
Apparently, a large majority of Bombay’s supporters had instead wrote on the ballot for the Senate race, ‘Quack quack quack Mr. Coleman, Quack quack quack Mr. Franken.’ Even though there was no name ﬁlled in, we were quickly able to put two and two together.” Bombay’s campaign began out in September as the “fun campaign”. As part of ice breaking activities, his supporters lassoed each other and instead of organizing, they practiced tossing eggs while speaking to potential voters. Unfortunately, these tactics were not working. Bombay struggled in the debates, and was down by 20 points in late October. At a rally of his supporters in the last week before the election, Bombay blasted his supporters for not caring much about the forthcoming, sending despite the fact that they were having fun, they we’re losing big. “We’re not goons,

we’re not mudslingers, we are just average Joes,” shouted Bombay to his followers. He then shouted to a campaign worker, “What’s you’re name?” That person told his name and location, as did the other 1500 people in the room. Two hours later, Bombay yelled, “I am Gordon Bombay of St. Paul, Minnesota! Even when the two party system crushes down upon us, Ducks ﬂy together! Now let’s go out and win the election!” Even though Bombay’s campaign lacked the resources of the two major candidates, and despite trailing by large amounts in early polls, they had heart and a never say die attitude, relying on such out of the
box tactics as Flying V Canvassing and Knucklepuck robo-calls. They also relied on attack ads accusing the Republican and Democrat of being secret Icelanders. This appears to be the difference maker in such a close, close race.
This was not the ﬁrst upset during the election cycle in this race. Bombay was surprising winner in the Independence Party Primary over public radio show host Garrison Keillor and mad scientist Clayton Forrester.

Vikings Attacked Rutgers Written By Maximus Vaginus Insertus Supremus Staff Writer
Seriously, can you imagine the devastation they would cause. Just picture it. The longship with the viking dragon painted onto the striped background of the sails looking all menacing coming into Rutgers. What, you don’t think that vikings would look menacing in real person. Do you realize just how vicious they are. They would eat your
wimpy asses up and then spit shines their axes, which would be drenched with the scarlet blood of the scarlet knights. Where you will you be then HUH! You wusbags would be standing in one place shitting in your pants thats where. These badass norse men would ride down from the Raritan River in there Drekkar longboats, and we wouldn’t have any defence against them because the crewing team was cut from funding for the football stadium. And you
Yep, Ford made a Maverick. Speaking of Maverick, we at the Medium just realized that in The movie The Mighty Ducks 2 that there is a character in the movie named Mccain in there. Holy Shit good job McCain-Palin cammpaign, you guys got the name out pre-emptively. Twelve years early, I don’t see any Obama’s out there. But why did he lose the election then if he had the Mighty Ducks helping him advertise. That is in addition to the Maverick to our left and all the other uses of maverick.. What does that say about the world huh, that was really random.
all know that they could do was, well, I needn’t go there, we all know that. Besides, by now jokes on how the football team have let us down by now are getting kind of old. But I digress. As I was saying, if vikings came to Rutgers up the Raritan river in their logboats with rape and pillage on their minds then y’all are screwed. But they will have a ball with their balls. Those ridiculous ratios at frat parties lie 5:1 or 8:1. HAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s
a laugh, the whole viking crew would pop in demanding some mead, and those ratios won’t stand. Hell, the fraternity won’t stand once the kegs run out, which would theoretically be half an hour, but in practice be eight minutes. Then once the pillaging ends, the raping begins. These vikings would not be from Minnesota, no these Vikings are of the rape and pillage variety. And boy (or in this case girl, well, bitch really) would they have a ball raping here at
Slutgers. Chances are they would be so struck by the amount of smuzzettes that they wouldn’t know where to start, and would just have to settle for pillaging... Editor’s Note You guys see what happens when I don’t get stuff. Are your eyes percieving this??? Do you want me to go norse on your phat- (sandwhiche)tened asses, no you don’t. So send a submission over to Features@themedium.net and it will be in included...

“Don’t forget Veterans’ D...wait, shit.”
That Was the Election Cycle That Was The 2008 election season was one of the wildest ones I have ever seen. Granted, that’s pretty easy for me to say because this was probably the ﬁrst election I was paying attention from top to bottom. In 2004, for instance, I was only half paying attention to the primary process, and was basi-
Torgo Van Pelt cally saying out loud from
there, “whose the good candidate? Dean? Okay. Hopefully he’ll win. Shit. Well, I don’t care much about Kerry or Edwards, but it would be better than Bush, so maybe we can do it. No. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.” In 2006, I didn’t really care until the end, thanks in part due to the failures of 2004 lingering in my head. No, this time I paid attention after the happy ending that was 2006. And I actually had a choice I wanted to win: Obama. Yeah, the lack of experience did scare me off a little bit, but in the end I eliminated the other candidates for nomination one by one and decided to go with him. Besides, the left needs a Reagan. Now, it’s nearly 2 years later, and we have a historical ﬁrst in that the Democrats did not ﬁnd a way to screw up a sure victory. While we are now getting ready for January 20th, let us look back at this past couple of years. Not for the last time, mind you, because I have one or two ideas left to use in the forthcoming issues. But, all the same, this is a good time to look back to see how we got here.
The entire ﬁeld in 2008 was much more interesting than previous years For the Democrats, you had Obama, Hillary, and Edwards as the frontrunners. Obama and Hillary are pretty much (admittedly) broken records, or at least that’s what it seems like after hearing them speak ad nauseam. Edwards-wow, we really dodged a bullet. I was
puzzled by how many people were out there that said, “Oh, Obama and Clinton are empty suits,” and then turn around and supported the ambulance chaser who was the son of a mill worker, and then later became Newt Gingrich 2.0. If there was an order of choices, it would have been probably something like Obama-Edwards-Dodd-RichardsonClinton-Kucinich-BidenGravel. I thought during the process that Biden was too conservative, too tied to special interests and too much of a gaffe machine to be on the ticket. Gravel was so awesome in many ways, but then when you heard what his actual policies were, it was an entirely different story. I saw Gravel speak back in April in Tent State. He ranted about how GE was conspiring to keep him out of debates, and that national referendums were the solution to all our problems. Kucinich was annoying 4 years ago, and he was at the beginning because of the fact that so many people were talking about how he would be the solution to all of life’s problems. I eventually changed my opinions when his naysaying was less grating than previous, and more importantly, having that wife of his and being endorsed by Aragon himself (maybe he got hit on the head a few too many times and thought he was endorsing Frodo?) And he then converted me with his speech in Denver. As for Clinton, she was okay. It was just, I didn’t think the Clinton years were that great and Terry McAuliffeeurgh. The Republican side on the other hand, well, it was nice to see the Republicans struggling to ﬁnd a choice. Jeez, it was so hilarious to see Rudy freakin’ Giuliani as their front runner for a time. Scary as fuck, yes, but hilarious as well. But not as hilarious as the fact that Dr. Ron Paul was actually the best fundraiser, and actually lasted enough that the newsletters he wrote praising David
Duke and other racist shit actually became an issue. His supporters were always hilarious, creating rap songs on YouTube praising the gold standard. It was funny how there so much contempt for Mike Huckabee, not because of his social conservatism, but because of the fact he actually wanted to spend money. Fred Thompson was such a spectacular dud, it still makes one smile. It got so bad, that people tried to make themselves like Mitt Romney, and to be fair there are some things to like about him. Unfortunately, those things are basically he awkwardly bantered with those African-Americans by quoting popular one-hit wonder ballads. In the end, they got the best nominee they could, although they hated it.
I remember talking to my brother about the choices McCain had for VP. I remember how we agreed, that yeah, Palin would not be a terrible choice in getting the base, but her lack of experience would hurt any attacks he would want on Obama. When I found out the choice at work, I think everyone I knew was shocked. Eventually though, the dirt dug was so huge, that I was able to breath. As for the pick of Biden, well, I admit, I can be a big hypocrite sometimes. But at least we now have an Amtrakfriendly administration! After seeing the conventions, I got nervous. I thought the Democrats did great, but seeing the GOP say the stuff they did with huge cheers made me sink in my seat. Fortunately, the debates went great. And despite doing shit like “Drill Baby Drill” and Joe the Plumber, the Democrats somehow still won it. Amazing. Granted, both are not going to go away any time soon (and I think Joe actually wants to run my brother’s Congressperson, so double eurgh), but the fact we got to this point-amazing.
days before the February 5th Primary, a couple of Obama supporters decided to have a rally for him at RU before about 100 people. They were some Congressman, the mayor of Edison, and Bill Bradley-pretty much the only establishment to support Obama in NJ. Meanwhile, my brother’s school had Kal Penn campaigning for him. Heh. So it was weird seeing Governor Corzine and the rest stumping for Obama on campus a couple months later. Weird to see Joe Cryan, who whined (Cryaned?) a lot about the funding the University was getting, now trying to get the youth vote out. And weird to see Governor Corzine suck up to Obama to get the Treasury Secretary position, after months of doing the same with Hillary. But it was still alright. The thing I’ll remember the most about the rally was the College Republicans protesting. They brought a Don’t Tread on Me ﬂag with them, which makes perfect sense given that Saddam was behind 9/11 (hey wait a minute...). And one of them was black; does that mean he curses at himself, attacks himself for doing that, than defends his First Amendment right to do such a thing? I also did a bunch of campaigning for the Democrat running for Congress in my district, Linda Stender. I actually met her once or twice; my thoughts- she’s
really short. Unfortunately, despite all the work, she could not shed the Stender is a spender bullshit, and lost to a Republican, who while better than the previous gopper, is still a Republican. Heck, Obama won Somerset County, but none of the other county Democrats had much luck. On the bright side, seeing my present congressman with an Idon’t-give-a-fuck-anymore Trotsky beard was awesome.
This was probably the ﬁrst year I actually actively watched cable news and it was okay. I checked out CNN during election nights, mainly because I had it in HD back home, and it was great, mainly for John King and his touch screen. I would write more about it, but seeing the Hologram stuff on the 4th makes anything I could write about it obsolete. Mind you, not in a bad way though. Another good thing about CNN was Anderson Cooper. I think he and Rachel Maddow would make a great couple, don’t you? And ﬁnally, there’s Keith Olbermann. I don’t know about you, but it seems weird that the left ﬁnally has it’s own Bill O’Reilly. And now there’s reports that he didn’t vote! You are the worst person in the world. In conclusion, this election rocked. Let’s hope this never happens again.

Georgia O’Keefe Painting of the Week This work is entitled “Ice Cave.” It has been said to express the emotional solitude of a woman who has replaced affection with lust. After realizing her fatal error, she becomes a sad shell of her former self. Looking deep into the painting could cause you to overcontemplate and fall into a dark blue void of pure genit- excuse me, genius. Plunge inside the world of O’Keefe’s mind and peer around at the intellectual pleasures waiting for you. Don’t take our word for it - art is interactive; it must be experienced, its many crevices explored. Excuse me?
No, this one doesn’t pass the smell test. Because it smells like a vagina.
