The Issue With the Issue

By Lauren Kim, Online Editor in Chief

Blueprint had to delay the distribution of issue five on Friday, February 6, 2015 due to a coincidental and statistically almost impossible placement of a memorial tribute to a departed former student, Jake Kallen, which ended up next to a story about a transgender teen who committed suicide. Blueprint editors noticed that there was a coincidental parallel between a Blueprint cartoon of an image of the deceased transgender teen and the memorial picture of Jake Kallen.

Blueprint will shift the order of some of the pages in the issue to relocate the memorial spread to a more uncontroversial position. Issue five will be released with the correction on Monday, February 9, 2015.
