RPM 2008

When we were brainstorming about a photo for this issue’s cover, at first we were thinking “grad photo!” But then someone else at the meeting blurted “Sargeant Pepper!” So what you see is an attempt at combining the two.

“Unfortunately my access to semi-formalwear involves jeans with less holes,” said one participant in an e-mail.
