Bring back the Offbeat

Benigno Sandoval | Thursday, October 25, 2012

Back when I was a young whipper-snapper (read-until this semester), The Observer ran a hilarious, entertaining and surprisingly informative section.

This section was called “the Offbeat” and offered out-of-the-ordinary news from around the country. Sadly the Offbeat no longer exists.

Its place has been filled by “The Next Five Days” and by slightly enlarging the “Question on the Day.” Please bring back the Offbeat. After all, the “Next Five Days” is only really applicable every fifth day. Right.
