Title

Article "Now You Know: Messenger Voices Thoughts"

Description

This article defines the "literary quality" mentioned in student handbooks given to freshman (called "Rats" by the author). Gibson claims that literary realism is sometimes "vulgar" and "obscene" just to be shocking, which makes it "pornographic trash." He asserts that the Messenger's quality lies in the fact that they do not accept such trashy works, as well as in that many literary formats are used. While Gibson claims it is not a "high brow" magazine, he ultimately says it is good because students create it and urges involvement.
