Robert E. Malchman

I have to disagree. This column from 10 years ago is pornography and exhibitionism masquerading as "advice." I would have been embarrassed to run this in The Tech (not that I would have), as apparently was the author, who declined to put her name on it.

I'm far from a prude (regular attendee at RegDay films and a member of Dean McBay's PornCom, appointed by the UA on a platform of "show 'em all"). But when I was EIC of The Tech, I wanted to put out a newspaper that any student could show his or her parents, and I would not have wanted my name, or anyone's on the mast, associated with this kind of anonymous crud. I made my share of mistakes (particularly my love of bad-taste puns in News Round-Up), but I didn't run obscenities, pornography or tabloid-esque shock news.

Favorite Movies

  • My all-time favorite movie:
    Groundhog Day. I have created a fan site that is universally acknowledged to be the best on the Internet dedicated to this work of art.

    All the rest of my favorite movies (Deadline USA, The Paper, CitizenKane) are Journalism movies.
