Hey Everyone, David, editor for the financial side of things, here! I know I don't show my face too much, but I wanted to share something with you all. I met Doug locally before starting working here, and because of that I get access to things such as Bloomington's Indiana Daily Student. It just so happens Mr. Doug Linn and Mr. Kelly Reid made it into the paper, so I thought I would share it with everyone. I know its not our typical article, but I thought it was quirky enough to be worth posting. Obviously this won't be part of the Insider tract, so everyone is free to get to know Doug and Kelly a bit more!
