Well, almost. In a few weeks. Regardless, what are your fondest memories from the nation's high school newspaper? Mine is from about 2 years ago, when a front page story (below the fold, but with a graph, thankfully) revealed this shocker: Kids don't like to clean their rooms.

Actually, after writing for a national-award winning H.S. paper (we won a Pacemaker two straight years, which is the highest award a HS publication can receive) for three years, I honestly think we put together a better paper than the USA Today. Obviously, we didn't have the national news they did, but in terms of writing quality and creative design, I think we had them beat.

I think anybody with half a brain and the time and dedication to put it together can do a better job than USA Today(not a smack at the ability of your HS paper, just a reflection about the piss-poor quality of McPaper).

The only saving grace about it was that the international version kept me up on baseball while I was in Germany for a month back in the day.

Hey, I used to read USA Today religiously - cover to cover every single day. Of course, I was in the 6th grade at the time.

McPaper! That doesn't have Beans Reardon beat, but it's close, daddy!

Their auto racing section is to die for, despite all the faults of the paper as a whole.
