Vol. 5 No. 2
o THE last social held by a certain students association had its president firing rather hot ones at fellow Piloksies. Now! now! Presidents cannot just cool fire with fire. Journalists big or small, thin or fat always burn for news. Piloksy suggests good behaviour on the part of the president and association and not give these journos any burning issues to write about.
o TALKING about fires, it’s amazing how quickly the paparazzi left town after things started getting a little hot from the Speight mates.
o One photographer found a rifle barrel poking down his camera lens: “There was nothing for me to dive behind. No vehicles, no rocks, no trees, so I just dived.” He survived.
o Another scribe, of campus fame, was kissed on the cheek by gunman George at a press conference. She wasn’t too impressed.
o TWO of our scribes had their fair share of scoops on coup day — Tamani Nair was on hand to report the takeover for the 11am Radio Fiji bulletin (from undercover in the cassava bushes) and Matelita Ragogo was in Parliament when the gunmen burst through the chamber doors.
o WATER cuts are becoming a dirty joke on campus, rather smelly too. How long before the USP authorities decide to give it a fresh bath.
o COMES Saturday night and all fun loving students are out in the city grabbing their piece of fun. Young and free its time to be naughty. Comes Sunday and all the best clothes come out, and most students mobilise towards the church. To put twink on the red marks of Saturday night. Such balanced lives.
