The University of Michigan continued to struggle with its official position on sexuality, snow and freedom of expression when a Hall Director reported a giant snow penis as a bias-incident. Apparently the confluence of these three much discussed topics was too much to go undocumented.
“No one reads newspapers in print anymore.” The new generation of avid technology-users has largely impacted the field of journalism. Newspaper printing is on the decline, as many publications now resort to electronic means to meet the needs of their audiences. At the Michigan Review, we find ourselves in a similar predicament.
