An Editors’ Take on the English Language

Meiya Weeks, Managing Editor

English. It is spoken by 952 million people around the world, which would be a better place if it was spoken less by many of them. It is the only language used by pilots while in the air, which caused 9/11. In Britain, English morphs into ‘trousers’ instead of ‘pants’; this sort of vocabulary led to the rapid decline of the empire’s size and influence in the 20th century. It has even become a popular college major, going so far as to be the only college major with no real purpose. As the now-former Games and Humor editor, I’ve grown accustomed to using the English language once a month while writing each issue. The position has truly been near and dear to my heart, and I’d like to offer a formal thanks as I officially sign off and start a new chapter. Gracias!
