this is great...how are they paying to get it printed tho? and distributed?

there's so much creativity and inspiration being lost in the world each day due to lack of resources and opportunity--it's a sin.

I think it's great how modern technology allows people from all walks to life to get on the stage. For example, people who aren't good enough to be published have weblogs, and people who can't attract investment can use DTP to make a community newspaper like these guys.
