In this busy world, it seems like the only thing we can do to succeed is stick together. In the spirit of the age, YM and mathNEWS joined forces to produce this sexy issue of YbarsubM. You may hear many stories of how the merger came about, from Christina Kelly begging Bradley and Pete to work together, to Pete and Bradley begging Christina Kelly, to Kenny coming up with the idea after taking Stat 231 in the winter (ya, like that could have happened).
A highlight of this issue is definitely the length: Look, we went for quality instead of quantity and succeeded in reducing the quantity! As proud as we are about having produced three consecutive issues over the quarter century mark, it's time to slim down, and I don't mean just waistlines (although that wouldn't hurt all you insecure 14-year-old girls reading this). Watch for easier to lift issues in the future — I know I look forward to fewer on the cart Thursday afternoons.

Kenny for thinking up the idea, Ross and Troy for bearing moustaches, Tex and Dan for posing without being paid in pizza, Gino's for the six extra-large pizzas, argaret for proofreading, everyone who submitted articles without coming to Production Night, Graphics for not minding too much when we delivered this late (I hope), Josie and the Pussycats for the awesome weekend, and YM for not suing (we're holding you to that).
