Editorial


Now to those who could not make it to the introductory night for the LitSoc, here is a line out of the infamous science-fiction novella “The Eye of Argon” written by Jim Theis that we raucously shared in reading aloud: “By the surly beard of Mirfc”, salutations everybody. Thank you for reading this third issue of The Scribbler. Let’s keep them coming!

I would like to personally thank the trees of this planet who do a great job of providing us with oxygen, shade, paper for our literature and tree-huts in which to play. I hope the old non-deciduous ones are not too cold this winter and I look forward to their bloom come spring. Keep it up.
