Your World Today: Who Let Me In Here?

  When I walked into The Slate office for the first time this semester, I sat down at our conference table. No big deal, right? Except for the fact that I had a desk. It is an ordinary desk – other than the chalkboard that says “The Slayte” – that I have seen many times with different people having control of the corner it occupies. It is the desk of The Slate’s Managing Editor: For the first time, that title belongs to me.
