We sent out word yesterday that we’d discovered one of our articles posted to the Chronicle’s website, without any attribution. As an anonymous publication, it was hard to argue that we deserved credit, but it still seemed wrong.
We’re happy to say that one of you communicated with the Chronicle’s editor, who cleared things up. It seems that last year, somebody went rogue and mailed a version of the article to the Chronicle as a letter to the editor. They decided it was funny enough for the web, but not funny enough to be printed. Which is more or less what we’ve always aimed for.
So, no harm, no foul. The story in question, An Open Letter from Satan to the Cameron Crazies, was probably our most successful story in three semesters of writing. Last spring someone shared it on a Duke basketball message board, and hundreds of people read it. We were delighted to see some of you re-posting it yesterday in anticipation of yet another victory over UNC.
We miss writing for you, but all good things come to an end. Still, this is a funny world. Enjoy it.
