Newspaper Theft Rampant at Tech; Censorship Suspected

New, 3 comments

The editorial staff of Georgia Tech's student newspaper is yellow-jacket mad over thousands of dollars of alleged thefts in recent weeks that they're calling "an illegal act of censorship of the media." Stacks upon stacks of the Technique — aka "The South's Liveliest College Newspaper" — have vanished from newsstands around campus, prompting a recent editorial that calls the acts "incredibly childish" and damaging to the venerable weekly's bottom line. For some unspecified reason, the staff seems convinced the First Amendment-filching culprit is an extremely peeved reader and not a mere prankster.
