    Dang, is Villanova up to good things these days?  I should pay attention to my alma mater, I suppose, though 'Novans have this tendency to disagree with my politics a teensy bit...

      When I was at Villanova Heston showed up, invited by the conservative paper (I forget the name). HUGE backlash from the (tiny) liberal community. God. I forgot how fucking conservative that place was. The VILLANOVA TIMES. That was the name of the rightwing BS, POS newspaper. Hell. I don't miss those people.

        the year the Villanova Times started up.  My freshman year they called it the Conservative Column; then they got the Horowitz training and re-branded themselves.  I wrote an opinion column for the Villanovan my junior and senior years, which often resulted in full page attacks on my character on the editorial pages of the Times.  There's no greater compliment than earning the ire of conservatives.
