Re: DML facing budget cuts

O no!  tough times for all!  Here at NCSU we've sold the last of our yummy bars
and now have to go to nonessential organs.

does the subscription price come with three free issues?  or a sea-monkey kit?
can we bid on your hair?

If you'd only sponsored one of the NASCAR drivers like the north carolinians
suggested, you'd be making a fortune on plastic models by now...

with gravest concern,
