SF Chronicle: Santa Cruz mourns one that didn't get away
Beloved campus koi stolen, possibly grilled

I knew that fish! A terrible loss, but what a joy it is to see my old paper quoted:

"FRAT Bastards" screamed a headline atop Wednesday's edition of the alternative campus newspaper, Fish Rap Live! It bore a cartoon showing a fraternity kegger/barbecue at the campus koi pond with a frat brother biting into a wide-eyed koi as others are passed out or romping in the pool while a TV camera captures the mayhem.

Any Santa Cruzans reading? I'd treasure a copy of this issue of Fish Rap. (My address is at the bottom of the page.)

Other favorite quote:

Porter, home to UCSC arts programs and "arty" students who embrace an "alternative" philosophy, according to residents.

My alma mater. Sigh.
