Dear Anderson Cooper: Thank You

Dear Anderson Cooper,

A couple of weeks ago, I was an audience member on your daytime TV show, Anderson. I wrote extensively about the situation and how disappointing I was at how the rest of the Penn State students and I were treated and represented. After the taping, I felt let down--I was a fan of Anderson Cooper 360 and you in general (we even shared a similar sense of humor!). Seeing you and your show act in the way that you did deeply saddened me.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I heard the news that two of your executive producers had stepped down, one of whom left because you disagreed with how they handled the aforementioned special.

One Shot Nicky Blends Genres, Releases Album

It's difficult to classify State College's newest local band, One Shot Nicky. The band, currently a duo comprising PSU seniors Alex Pianovich and Justin Russikoff, plays the folksy, bluesy style that has come to characterize indie music lately. At the same time, their music embraces another popular trend — it draws influences from a wide spectrum of genres that allows one song to sound very different from another.

But if you ask them, they prefer to call their music "folkrockcountrypunk."
