I want to take a moment to explain some of the rationale for the stories in this issue of our magazine. As you may or may not know, Klipsun is a Lummi word meaning "beautiful sunset," and if you glance over to page 7, you will notice a story dealing with the appropriation of Indian words by environmental groups for non-Indian purposes.
Klipsun Magazine is an example of such appropriation, but it has been the name of this magazine for as long as we can remember. We did not feel it was our place to change the name of the magazine without more student input, as we editors of Klipsun Magazine are such a small representation of the campus community. We felt the story covered an important issue and would like to open and encourage meaningful dialogue. Please read the story and make your own decision, then let us know how you feel about it. (206) 650-3737.
The next story I want to discuss deals with sex and everyone's right to their own individual sexuality. The editorial staff and I talked about the pros and cons of publishing this story and decided that since sex is such a prevalent topic in our lives it was pertinent and thus publishable.
I hope when you read the magazine it makes you stop and think about some of the things going on around you.
Anyway, welcome back to Western! Be it your first year or your last, I hope you will enjoy it. This happens to be my final hurrah and I wish all of those I leave behind good luck in their classes and lives.
Pilgrim, Tim A.
