Editor's Notes : From the Belly of the Dough Boy by Matt Mason
published in Volume 2, Issue 1 on January 20th, 1995

And here we are getting wild and happy, entering our second year of The Morpo Review. As I look back, I have to ask myself certain questions such as, "did Morpo make the world a better or safer place?" and "Why would anyone live in North Dakota?"

The first question, as much as it may sound like a credit card commercial, makes me plunk down in front of the TV like a sleepy mule as I've never been good at philosophy or existentialism, but boy can I watch Hogan's Heroes reruns without any anxieties.

As for that second question, I don't know. All I know is that I used to be co-editor around here with Bob, then I went on a trip to Europe and couldn't edit the last issue of The Morpo Review and when I came back there were two new editors and people expected me to mop floors and empty trash.

Kindly, they still let me include my sputterings here, but I have been banished to Grand Forks, North Dakota for the winter. But they tell me that if I behave, I can come back to Omaha and be promoted to dusting and filing, maybe even by spring.

Anyway, I was talking about Morpo's first anniversary before that. Happy Birthday to Morpo. With your submissions and comments and general interest, there'll hopefully be many more. As for me, I'd better go, it's 9 below outside but Sergeant Schultz just fell for Hogan's strudel bribe again...
