In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Over the past two years, I have acted as editor of St. John Fisher's literary magazine, The Angle. I can honestly say that it has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life. I would like to thank Dr. Nicolay especially for giving me this position and the opportunity to run this magazine. Because we were both new, it has taken quite a bit of time to get used to dealing with the bureaucracy involved in constructing an issue of a magazine. In the beginning, we did not even know who was funding our endeavor; now we have become active members in the Media Funding Board and are helping to create an advisory board. Because of our "newness," The Angle has not been done on our scheduled time for the past two years. In both instances there were extenuating circumstances that were out of our control. I would like to take this time to formally apologize to all of the students who had their works published in this magazine and were waiting and waiting. It has been a struggle; but, I believe that in the two issues that I have helped to publish, the end result was worth the wait."
