    You’d be surprised. I think you’re wrong.

    The Alligator is nothing if not one of the UF blogosphere’s greatest allies in the fight for truth, justice, and the American way here on campus. And there are some of us on both sides of the media. Hmm…

    I stand corrected. But the article, with no real “news” either seemed to be a filler, or a catcher-up on things.

    I live near D.C. now, so can only get my news from the Alligator, the SG bloggers, and my few contacts left down there that haven’t graduated yet.

    As long as you’re honest, I’ll continue to read your blogs. I just hope the Alligator does a bit more work this year to keep up with the happenings of SG – as I’m sure 85% of what goes on, especially in the formation of the spring parties, is never fully or even partially reported on.

    It’s true that a lot of what goes on remains unreported, but you have to remember – the Alligator is written and published for ALL of UF’s students who, outside of the 150 or so of us SG nerds, can’t stand more than about 15 seconds of SG per day.

    Hence where the blogs come in, putting out in the open everything the Alligator doesn’t. It’s something of a symbiotic relationship. And straight economics, for that matter. But what would a liberal poli sci graduate know of such things, eh? 😉

    Of course, I do. But that doesn’t change my yearning for the Alligator to spend more than a cursory attention to an organization that controls $11 million and impacts virtually every student activity on campus. Especially when there is so much intrigue and drama surrounding the “system” and the “independents”.

  5. Virgil says:

    Hmph. Intrigue. Heh. Drama. Heh. A GDI craves not these things.

    I agree – it’s saddening how little students actually care about SG; the Alligator is only pandering to their base though, to use a political metaphor. There are other sources of information for folks who eat, sleep, and breathe SG. Do they have the resources of the Alligator? No. Are they as good as the Alligator? No. Will they have to do? Yes.

    And I was just struck by an idea. Thank you Ken.
