"I stand by all the misstatements I've made." Dan Quayle
When it is considered "frivolous" to
make people laugh, to lighten their day, to spread good cheer, life
becomes a pointless, dull, repetitive exercise. Pain and tragedy are
inevitable, but their existence is no reason to shun laughter, for it
too has a place and a point to make. For this reason we could not let
the tradition of the Low Profile die simply because one woman
obsessed with today's gloom and doom declared it frivolous.
We wish sincerely that we could list
all those who donated time or funding to this project; it is theirs
as much as it is ours. However, there are several who feel it necessary
to remain anonymous from fear of recriminations should it become known
that they aided mere frivolity. It is a sad state, especially for a
college campus, especially for a campus as tolerant as Agnes Scott...but
there it is.
We must especially thank Modern Press
for assisting us over the last hurdle in our way. The Pastiche
staff highly recommends them for all your printing needs.
To all those who gave, in silence or
out loud, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Though the format
is different than what you're used to, we hope we have nevertheless
fulfilled the spirit of the "Low Profile" and that you enjoy the Pastiche.
To those who attempted to stand against
us, we have but one thing to say: Happy April Fool's Day!
