Title

Opinion "Much Ado About Nothing"

Description

This is a satirical piece commenting on the perceived apathy of students at the University of Richmond. The author consistently says that he has nothing to say, because his opinions aren't worth saying. He says that trying to "transcend the limited environment of the University of Richmond" by talking about war, poverty, race, or drugs would "drive away prospective readers." He continues with a sarcastic look at other subjects which have been discussed (like criticism of President Modlin), saying that he has nothing more to add to them. He ends by offering a reward to people who guess the setting he is writing in - the reward is photographs of those who won an award called the Sen. Wicker award. His last words are "sorry, no minority groups."
