This was a sad, sad article. Firstly, there was ZERO tie in to any current topical mainstream media event, so the choice of this as the cover article was just confusing. Nice clustering of potential Apocalypse events by category, but really, the movie references got a little old. One or two were funny, but that bit wore out really quickly. It'd have been better just to have a side article listing all of the related movies, and use the space to develop some of the ideas. And if you are going to just do an Armageddon-movie montage, no reference to End of Days? I Am Legend? Apocalypto, for chrissake?! It's got Apocalpse in the name of the movie!
My general feeling about this is that Erik put off writing this until 15 minutes before his final deadline, and then just put down whatever he could think of. Please don't do that again. I know your paper is a rag, but at least I could count on it being a sarcastic, insightful and humorous rag. This was just disappointing.
It should be noted that the "potato thing" was recommended by OI's naturopathic staff and students from the National College of Natural Medicine, who also run a variety of other low-cost community clinics around town. They can be found at www.ncnm.edu or www.coalitionclinics.org/ncnm.html.
