The Bullsheet


The Bullsheet is a student-run publication for news, humor and community dialogue that is printed daily. It was founded in 1980 to combat student apathy, and it remains central to campus culture by providing an open forum for free speech. I have been a contributor to The Bullsheet since the first semester of my freshman year, gaining editor status the following semester. This position has granted me experience in writing for deadlines on a wide range of topics, screening content from student submissions, and has made me confident in using the latest version of Adobe InDesign.  



It’s crazy how our sense of smell can take us back to a certain moment in time. The feelings and sensations we had in those moments become vivid once more, giving us a chance to relish in the beauty and the awe we experienced say, the rst time we saw the ocean on a warm day in the summer of 1999. Pax Labs, the people who brought us Juul and Juul products understand this better than anyone.

How do you do, fellow kids?? So I understand this isn’t technically my first sheet of the semester, but formal recruitment was last week so that doesn’t really count, as I actually emotionally and spiritually transcended the boundaries of my physical self.

But of course, you are my colleague and my friend, and I don’t take issue with you, but instead with what you wrote. There was one glaring problem, in a specific sentence that I took greatest issue with: “But then yesterday happen (sic). Around 9:00 am a story broke on Politico that Al tried to forcibly kiss another women in 2006. Al denied the accusation as “categorically not true” and I believe him.” Why?

Last night, at an outdoor country concert on the Las Vegas strip, 64-year old, white, Nevada resident Stephen Paddock opened fire on concert-goers. At the time of my writing this, 59 people have been confirmed dead, and at least 527 others were injured. You read that correctly. It is the deadliest mass shooting in the modern United States since the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016, slaying 49 people and injuring 53. America suffered more casualties last night, in this singular event, than we have in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2016 and 2017 combined (Credit: Paul Brandus, @WestWingReport). According to law enforcement and survivor accounts, the carnage took somewhere between 7-10 minutes.
