SPRIL News is the official newsletter of the Subatomic Particle Rights League. This was published in print form by Tom Jones primarily at New Mexico Tech, and consisted mostly of “psuedo-scientific satire”. After Tom left Tech, a few issues were published on-line, including a selection of Dr. Staff’s Greatest Hits. Dr. Staff is/was a scientific genius who taught about a third of all classes offered at Tech (that is, if you went by each semester’s course catalog) who took the time to answer reader’s questions. Tom also served as student body president and editor of the official school newspaper, Paydirt. He brought a new new era of quality to the paper, but having a satirist n charge of the official news brought forth some very interesting issues.
