We regret to inform readers of The Corner that Caleb M and Kiran M, two of our long-time senior staff writers, resigned last week. Below is the unedited transcript of the letter submitted by them to the Editorial staff. To provide the reader with some context, the issue at the heart of the controversy was the said writers’ assertion that their voices were not equally represented by the editors and advisors of The Corner due to previous unfocused behavior on their part.
Dear Newspaper Heads,
This letter is to inform you of our impending resignation from your organization. We are sorry to let you know that although our time here had its share of good times, we feel that the challenges we faced outweigh the pros during our stay at your remarkable institution.
We would like to thank you for the many bountiful and great opportunities we have received in your employment. They have been plentiful and it is very unlikely that we would have been able to make use of these opportunities elsewhere. However, while thanking you for these chances you have given us, we respectfully wish you well. Although this job has been a great experience for both of us and we have enjoyed our time working here very much, we think it’s time for us to go.
We would like to extend the olive branch of peace to you, and hope that no feelings are hurt during this exchange or employeeship. If there is anything we can do to help ease the transition from coworkers to just friends, please let us know utilizing the contact information posted above.
Kiran McCulloch, Caleb Metelits
In addition to the letter, Kiran and Caleb also gave the Editorial staff a farewell gift of “Fiber Optic Lazer Fingers.”
