The cover story of the Weekly this week is about Oxy’s ranking in U.S. News and World Report, something that was blogged about here weeks ago (on September 30th). The Weekly’s article is obviously far more in-depth and knowledgeable than this blog could ever hope to be, so if you’re interested check it out here: http://media.www.oxyweekly.com/media/storage/paper1200/news/2007/10/19/Features/Much-Ado.About.Ranking-3042264.shtml
I think that this is a case where the paradigm between what this blog does (or hopes to do) and what the Oxy Weekly does is clearly demonstrated — the blog will give you whatever I feel the interesting tidbit of the story is, and hopefully be far more timely than the newspaper can be (in this case, it was weeks earlier), but the newspaper will eventually follow it up with deeper coverage that will give you the full story (assuming it’s something worth following up, and not stupid signs).
(By the way, yes, I co-authored the story on the rankings, so in a way this post is a little bit of self-promotion. Can you really blame me though?)
