Jackson's pathetic drivel fails to inform or amuse

In five years of reading The Tech, I have never come cross such unregenerate drivel as what flows from the pen of columnist Bill Jackson '93. At least last year one could excuse his gaffes such as his follow-up ["GAMIT confuses academic debate with hostility," March 16] to senior Gregory S. Richardson's letter ["GAMIT should accept the views of anti-homosexuals," March 6] on the basis that he was an ignorant freshman.

But this year, his sophomoric attempts at humor are such an abject disgrace that even Jim's Journal (that pathetic excuse for a comic strip) is hilarious by contrast. I shudder to think of what this cretin might come up with in the next couple of years. Juvenile inanity? Senile platitudes? The mind reels. Please, someone spray a can of Raid on him and flush the carcass down the toilet. Spare me from the agony of having to read his columns.
