Here at Fiat Lux, we’ve tried to keep you up on the goings-on at Stanford with regular, interesting commentary. With the Class of 2013 now landed on campus, our posts should get more regular. But while we’ve been writing here, three recent alums of the Stanford Review have moved beyond the Stanford bubble to write in the news professionally.
Editor-in-Chief emeritus Brian O’Connell is now the Collegiate Network fellow at The**American Spectator. His predecessor as EIC, Carl Kelm, is interning at The**Wall Street Journalafter winning News Corporation’s Eric Breindel Collegiate Journalism Award. Former Opinion Section Editor and investigative news writer Allysia Finley is also at the *Wall Street Journal *as the assistant editor of OpinionJournal.com.
From drug smuggling to California unions and all the political commentary in between, O’Connell, Kelm, and Finley have kept busy staying on top of the news. Below the jump, sample some of their articles.
