The election is finally over (hopefully). That means there’s about two to three months of waiting for the other shoe to drop, depending on your political orientation, but in the meantime, take a deep breath. At least we don’t have to hear constant bickering, shouting and screaming for a little while.Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief

“Saints Row 3” and “Saints Row 4” are basically my favorite games ever, because no other series allows me to gun down aliens in the dead of night while wearing nothing but some thigh high heeled boots and some sweet sunglasses. Also while being the president. Why is this relevant? Zach Lowery, the lead animator of “Saints Row 3” and “Saints Row 4” will be the keynote speaker at this year’s pop con! He will be giving a talk in the Wood Center Ballroom from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. about aspects of working in the video game industry that everyone needs to know, but nobody tells you. –Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Did you know that today is World Kindness Day? I know some of us are still going to be reeling from the results of the election this week, no matter which candidate said results favor. So today, I beg you, be kind to those around you. It’s been a stressful year, but break is coming up and we’ve all made this far. I bet there’s some people in your life to thank for their kindness to you along the way because there certainly are for me. –Kyrie Long / Copy Editor
