Hello again, it s your good friends at Klipsun. We've whipped up another tasty potluck of stories for you. Hope you're hungry.

You will be appalled and engaged by the cover piece on Gary Goldfogel, Whatcom County's medical examiner. Yes, folks, he dissects dead bod­ies to find out how they got that way It, sounds gross, but what's so fascinating about Goldfogel is he doesn't shut down emotionally when he’s at work. It’s his desire to provide answers for grieving families that keeps him focused.

We’ve got stories on Russians, soap opera addicts, the producer of Highlander, and much much more! Still, this issue’s strongest point is its insightful writing. Our writers each began with general topics and emerged with people-stories— stories you can almost feel breathing next to you.

Enjoy this issue—I know I will, it’s my last. At the risk of being sappy, I’ll shed a tear and tell you how hard this editorial staff has worked to make Klipsun so pretty and interesting that you would be unable to resist reading. Do us a favor and tell us if it worked. There’s a readers’ poll floating around in here. Please fill it out and drop it in a campus mail box. Karma will reward you.
