THE BOOK Prolouge.

THE MOST DRAMATIC STORY OF THE CENTURY IS HERE.

Long ago in a place and time that is fairly close to now. There lived a thing called a book. This book was filled with amazing stories

and people loved it. It lived happily in a place called a library. But then one day a man named George Lucas walked into town. He

laughed at the puny book and came up with a completely new idea! A book with pictures that would take place in space a long long

time ago. And People left The book’s library and went to the movies to watch people slice each-other apart with swords of light.

And after a long period of time with no people to read the book. The book decided to do one last thing. The book changed all the

words in itself to make the one and only best book in the universe. And so here at the Jeffersonian from the ruins of an ancient

library we found this story. And we now begin to transcribe the book itself to you. Now you have a choice to read the book for

yourself and make a choice. A simple choice that could decide the future of mankind. TV or Books? lets find out.
                             THE BOOK.

The Trojan Horse that is the Republican Presidential Candidate.

(Editor’s Note:  The opinions expressed here are solely those of the author, and not necessarily those of any other humans (adults or non-adults) at Jefferson Middle School.  Eventually we will get tired of telling you this, and hope that you already knew this to be true.  But for now,  just making sure everyone is straight about it.

As noted in “The Bugle Podcast” (http://thebuglepodcast.com/), Since 2000, the Republican Party has been using a rather strange strategy. What started with the Bush/Cheney presidential run has evolved into a strategy they still use today. With the Bush/Cheney ticket came this strategy: Take a nice, friendly- seeming person, with a perfectly clean record and make them the Presidential candidate. Then you take the person who expresses what you really believe, and run him for Vice-President.

Take Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin and now: Paul Ryan. In my opinion these Vice-Presidents (candidates and/or actual office-holders) are the Republican extremists and they have served Presidents who are less right-wing. That’s just my opinion, you don’t have to believe anything I say. Or even agree!

Thanks just for reading! Editorial, *Op-Eds and assorted news stories come out on Tuesdays now!!!  If you’re a Jefferson student interested in writing an “Op-Ed,” drop us a column.  We’ll be sure to get back to you about possible publication.  Really!

*If you don’t know what “Op-Ed” means, it’s a column expressing an opinion that would be placed “opposite” the editorials in a hard-copy newspaper.
