Rumination About The O&B Observer
While I was biking across the quad today (something I rarely do this semester) I heard some group auctioning off a shotgun. I didn't hear them say that they were with the Orange and Blue Observer, seeing as I was trying to go get lunch, but seeing as they have a track record of doing such things, it seemed a safe assumption. Whether or not it was the O&B Observer doing the auction/raffle/whatever, I have to say that it's getting rather old. I mean, the orignal stunt of auctioning it off to support a concealed carry law that was introduced without any intention of it passing was a clever (if misguided) idea. Now that this is at least the third time they've held the raffle, and now that some other group has already done a raffle for some waterguns, the novelty has definitely worn off. The shock value of them being so stupid is gone and has been replaced with an "oh, it's them" whenever they're out on the quad. It's almost as old as their "repressed conservative" schtick. I have to wonder when they are going to do something new, because now that this is losing the shock value that they really want, they're going to have to resort to something more outrageous, and that makes me wary.
